See Under: Love. David Grossman on Bruno Schulz

May 4 | 92nd Street Y | NYC

Born in Drohobycz, Galicia (now Poland) in 1892, Bruno Schulz, a drawing teacher by trade, wrote two story collections—Cinnamon Shops (1934) and Sanatorium Under the Sign of Hourglass (1937)—before he was killed by the Gestapo in 1942. His novel-in-progress, The Messiah, has never been found. “I wanted to write a book that would tremble on the shelf,” wrote Israeli novelist David Grossman, whose See Under: Love stands as a lasting tribute to Schulz. Join Grossman as he discusses Schulz’s work and “the kind of ‘life’ that Schulz’s writing showed me.”
