Refusenik: Misogyny and Antisemitism from Russia to Los Angeles

Hosted By: The New York Public Library

In her new poetry collection, Lynn Melnick dives fearlessly into personal and generational trauma, interrogating misogyny and anti-Semitism across time and a shifting global landscape—from a football field in Los Angeles to a Russian shtetl to a beloved daughter’s Brooklyn bedroom. Both unraveling and allowing for the tangles of anger, nostalgia, and love, Melnick furrows deeper into the terrain of her much-celebrated earlier titles, arriving at a profound understanding of what it means to be a contemporary American.

Lynn Melnick researched and wrote Refusenik during her 2017–2018 Fellowship at the Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. She speaks about the book with award-winning writer and editor David L. Ulin.
