Translator Talk: Dineh, An Autobiographical Novel
Hosted By: Yiddish Book Center (Amherst, MA)
Translator Yermiyahu Ahron Taub in conversation about his latest work in translation, “Dineh: An Autobiographical Novel” by Ida Maze. Maze interweaves Dineh’s story with portraits of others, chiefly women and girls, in her community. We meet the mysterious seamstress Shprintse; Beyle, who leaves home to work as a maidservant in Minsk; and Hinde, who falls in love with a young nobleman, among numerous unforgettable others. Maze unflinchingly examines the lives of women, writing about class stratification, thwarted romance, violence (domestic, state-instigated, and otherwise), and the perils of childbirth. Join translator Yermiyahu Ahron Taub for a conversation about the book followed by a Q&A.
