- Svetlana Alexievich
- Jamey Gambrell (translator)
“ I love life in its living form, life that’s found on the street, in human conversations, shouts, and moans.” So begins this speech delivered in Russian at Cornell University by Svetlana Alexievich, winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature. In poetic language, Alexievich traces the origins of her deeply affecting blend of journalism, oral history, and creative writing. In English and Russian, with English translation by Jamey Gambrell.
