Join us for a reading and conversation with Peter Bush and Alicia Borinsky. This event celebrates the recent publication of Peter Bush's translation from Catalan of the Spanish Civil War novel UNCERTAIN GLORY (NYRB Classics, 2017). In the novel, author Joan Sales, a combatant in the war, distills his experiences into a timeless story of thwarted love, lost youth, and crushed illusions. A thrilling epic that has drawn comparison with the work of Dostoyevsky and Stendhal, UNCERTAIN GLORY is a homegrown counterpart to classics such as HOMAGE TO CATALONIA and FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS. Presented in partnership with the Institut Ramon Llull. Reception & Book-signing to Follow.
