Linor Goralik writes conversational short works that conjure the absurd in all its forms, reflecting post-Soviet life and daily universals. Her mastery of the minimal, including a wide range of experiments in different forms of micro-prose, is on full display in the newly published collection Found Life, her first to appear in English. Goralik will read stories and poems from Found Life and will be joined in conversation by Maya Vinokour, of NYU’s Department of Russian and Slavic Studies, who co-edited / translated the book.
Linor Goralik is a writer, poet and artist living between Israel and Russia. She has authored a number of novels, short prose and poetry collections, non-fiction works, and children’s books. In addition to writing fiction, she translates prose and poetry from Hebrew and English and teaches costume theory at the State University for the Humanities and the Higher School of Economics, both in Moscow. Featuring selections of Goralik’s short prose, poetry, dramas, and comic strips, Found Life is the first English-language collection to exhibit the author’s full literary range, showing her to be a keen observer of relationships at every scale — from interpersonal to international.
