Everything Flows: A Celebration of Vasily Grossman
Vasily Grossman, now widely regarded as the greatest Russian novelist of the 20th century, died 50 years ago this month. The author of the remarkable Everything Flows and Life and Fate (the only manuscript ever to be itself arrested by the Soviet authorities), Grossman was a crucial witness to the multiple horrors of the period. He did not live to see his greatest books published. In a unique evening of readings and discussion, Robert Chandler, Grossman’s finest translator, will report back from the first Grossman conference in Russia and, alongside commentary from historian Antony Beevor and journalist John Lloyd and extracts and stories read by Janet Suzman, will assess Grossman’s extraordinary achievement and his legacy both in Russia and internationally. The evening will be chaired by Gareth Evans.

I'm going to hear Matt Haig tomorrow night on Satire as Reflection at Battersea Arts Centre. The full programme can be found here:
I'm an Australian university student and I'm doing a project on literary festivals. As part of my project, I really want to get to know the reasons why people attend, and what they like and don't like about these festivals, and so I've made an online survey.
If any of you have fifteen or twenty minutes to spare, I would really appreciate it if you would take the survey. It's available here: http://monasheducation.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_eS5yuFzISslKPTT
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask here or shoot me an email at maweb5 at student dot monash dot edu
Here's the blurb: On the shores of Lake Michigan, Rebecca Meyer seeks escape. Guilt-ridden over her little sister’s death, she sets her heart on India, a symbol of peace.
Across the ocean in South India, Sagai Raj leaves his tranquil hill station home and impoverished family to answer a higher calling. Pushing through diverse cultural and religious milieus, he labors toward his goals, while wrong turns and bad choices block Rebecca from hers.
Traveling similar paths and bridged across oceans through a priest, the two desire peace and their divine destiny. But vows and blind obedience at all costs must be weighed…and buried memories, unearthed.
Crooked Lines, a beautifully crafted debut novel, threads the lives of two determined souls from different continents and cultures. Compelling characters struggle with spirituality through despair and deceptions in search of truth.
Hope to see you there. ***Free Event*** November 3rd 6:00-8:30pm
