Description

"The originality of Tulli's writing is not lessened by representing a family tree that includes Michaux, Kafka, Calvino, and Saramago."--W.S. Merwin

In this inventive novel, Magdalena Tulli creates a world that is unreal, yet strangely familiar and utterly convincing. Set in a mythical fourth partition of Poland, "In Red" is full of haunting descriptions of the town and its inhabitants; its power lies in Tulli's evocative, almost hallucinatory use of language.

Magdalena Tulli's novels include "Dreams and Stones," winner of Poland's Koscielski Foundation Award; "Moving Parts," nominated for the 2007 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award; and "Flaw," shortlisted for the 2007 NIKE Literary Award. Tulli is also the translator of Marcel Proust and Italo Calvino into Polish.
