*Sold Out* – email to be added to the waitlist

featuring Madeline G. Levine, Kenan Professor of Slavic Literatures Emerita

Winner of the Polish Cultural Institute 2019 Found in Translation Award

“Schulz’s prose is renowned for its originality. Set largely in a fictional counterpart of his hometown of Drohobych, his stories merge the real and the surreal. The most ordinary objects—the wind, an article of clothing, a plate of fish—can suddenly appear unfathomably mysterious and capable of illuminating profound truths….Madeline G. Levine’s masterful new translation shows contemporary readers how Schulz, often compared to Proust and Kafka, reveals the workings of memory and consciousness.”
—Northwestern University Press

“The world of Schulz’s stories is the world of his childhood, filtered through the broken stained-glass window of his mad, visionary imagination….Collected Stories is a remarkable legacy.”
The Wall Street Journal

“I read Schulz’s stories and felt the gush of life. On every page, life was raging, exploding with vitality, suddenly worthy of its name; it was taking place on all layers of consciousness and subconsciousness, in dreams, in illusions, and in nightmares.”
—David Grossman, The New Yorker

“It is without question a translation masterwork….Levine finally allows English-language readers to spend time with the living Bruno Schulz—serious, funny and breathtakingly real.”
