In the following weeks, we will be presenting the special guests at the first gala in the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation’s thirteen years of existence.
The event will feature authors who shift swiftly between fiction and journalism, and who don’t shy away in their work from global precarity, and translators whose work transports literature and ideas from less-diffused languages to so-called “mainstream” languages and vice versa.
5:00 PM*, DIMITER KENAROV (BG) and RANA DASGUPTA (INDIA/UK)
Dimiter Kenarov is a poet, translator and literary journalist whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, Outside, The Nation, The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, The International New York Times, and The Virginia Quarterly Review, among many others.
Rana Dasgupta is a novelist and essayist. His novel Solo (2010) won the Commonwealth Prize, while Capital (2014), a documentary account of transformations in the city of New Delhi, won the Ryszard Kapuściński Award and the Prix Emile Guimet. He is currently writing After Nations: A History of the Future.
