Robert Menasse on literature and Europe
February 9 @ 20:30 - 22:00
The renowned Austrian author, Robert Menasse, explores the fascinating narrative of Europe in his second great EU novel — the first was The Capital. Menasse said, ‘Europe has a beautiful, smart, and fascinating narrative, a narrative that makes this continent the avant-garde of the world.’ Now he has taken it upon himself to tell the story of the first post-national democracy.
In his novel The Enlargement, Robert Menasse reunites two friends who once stood against Polish communism. Now, they find themselves at the heart of European politics. Through this riveting narrative, Menasse addresses a critical question facing Europe today: How can individuals from diverse political backgrounds and cultural histories unite under a common banner?
