Join Wojciech Nowicki at Aesop Tribeca for a reading from his new book, Salki, and a conversation with Paris Review managing editor Nicole Rudick.

Praised by Andrzej Stasiuk (“Your skin will crawl with pleasure from reading”), Salki is a work of contemporary reportage, in which the author uses the concept of reisefieber—the intense emotions preceding a journey—to investigate the salkis, or attic rooms where memories are stored, of his family. Through these lenses he looks at the omnipresent violence in twentieth-century Eastern Europe, madness, and much more. Winner of the prestigious Gdynia Literary Award for Essay, Salki is in the tradition of the works of W. G. Sebald and Ryszard Kapuściński.
