Olga Slavnikova is one of Russia’s most talked about discoveries. Her first novel, A Dragon-fly Enlarged to the Size of a Dog, was on the short list for the Booker Prize (1997) and for the Anti-Booker (1999) and received the P. Bazhov Prize. Alone in the Mirror, her second novel, was short-listed for the Anti-Booker and received the Pavel Bazhov Prize. The Man Who Couldn’t Die, her third novel, won Slavnikova the Apollon Grigoriev Prize and was short-listed for both the Belkin Prize and the National Bestseller Prize. Slavnikova’s most recent novel, 2017, won the 2006 Russian Booker Prize.

Olga Slavnikova will read from her most recent book, 2017, and will answer questions.
