 Monika Zgustová: Goya’s Glass

November 19, 2012 at 6:30 PM

Reading and Talk at New York University, 19 University Place, Great Room

Threee extraordinary women in three centuries: The Duchess of Alba, known as Goya’s muse, in times of Inquisition, the Czech writer Božena Němcová, member of the national Enlightenment movement in Austro-Hungary, and the Russian writer Nina Berberova who escapes persecution during the Russian Revolution.

Zgustova has published seven books, including novels, short stories, a play, and a biography. In 2004, she published biography of Bohumil Hrabal. Her translations from the Czech into both Spanish and Catalan, which include ten works by Bohumil Hrabal, Václav Havel, Jaroslav Hašek and Milan Kundera, have made her a key figure in the introduction of major Czech 20th century fiction into Spain. Zgustová received the Gratias Agit Prize from the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
