Voices of Europe – Oxford Literary Festival
16th January, 2019
Three writers from mainland Europe, Jacek Dehnel, Piotr Tarczynski and Jasmin B. Frelih talk about their work and give readings in both English and their mother tongues. All three are young writers using experimental form to express their ideas.
This session lasts 90 minutes and is preceded by a first Voices in Europe event. Tickets for the individual event are priced £7-£12.50. A combined ticket for both events is £8-£15. Please book through Voices of Europe 1 if you would like the combined ticket. Light refreshments will be on sale between the events.
Dehnel is a writer, poet and translator from Poland who has written several novels including Lala and Saturn. He also writes crime fiction with his partner Tarcczynski, a translator and historian, under the pseudonym Maryla Szymiczkowa. Their latest is Mrs Mohr Goes Missing.
Frelih is from Slovenia. His debut novel, In/Half, won the best literary debut award at the Slovenian Book Fair and the EU Prize for Literature. Translation rights have been sold to more than ten territories.
The session is chaired by writer and critic Boyd Tonkin, who writes on arts and books for the Financial Times, the Economist and Spectator, and is special adviser to the Man Booker International Prize (which he chaired in 2016).
