Olga Tokarczuk at the Passa Porta Festival
‘To me, Tokarczuk is one of the most important literary voices of Europe. She is breaking through internationally and she deserves more attention. Tokarczuk has written a very idiosyncratic oeuvre. She dares to tackle controversial subjects and does so without shocking. She really digs deep in her work, she writes metaphysical books.’ So wrote Alicja Gescinska about her countrywoman Olga Tokarczuk. We were only too glad to respond to Gescinska’s appeal and invited both writers in for a conversation.
