Q&A with Russian writer and dissident Victor Erofeyev and director Ari Matikainen, led by Hans Loos.


Victor Erofeyev

A son of a diplomat, Erofeyev was expelled from the writers’ union in 1979, when he established the Metropol literary almanac without submitting it to Soviet censorship. Until 1988, he was banned from publishing. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Erofeyev achieved his breakthrough with The Russian Beauty and published in The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books. Last year, he published his latest novel Akimudy.
