Something old and something new: Flights in Tulsa

I've never kept a blog before, and I can't say I know for sure how long this one will last.

But I did just want to say how grateful I am to Lars Engle and Keija Parssinen, as well as the University of Tulsa and Magic City Books, for the North American launch of my translation of Olga Tokarczuk's Flights, from Riverhead Books, which took place last night. It was overwhelmingly wonderful to find myself in the company of childhood friends and neighbors and college professors and family, as well as numerous new faces, and I think it will take me some time to fully process, but until then: thank you, Tulsa, for receiving me (and Olga, in absentia) with wide-open arms.


(This morning Boris and I went to Philbrook Museum of Art--my first and fondest museum memories are of this one--and I took a picture outside of the flowers above.)
