Interview: Czech Author Jáchym Topol Talks With Translator Alex Zucker

On journalism, paying the bills, genocide, the Holocaust, Belarus, and growing up under communism — not in that order

Thanks to Daniel Medin, of the Center for Writers and Translators, and to Scott Esposito, editor of the Quarterly Conversation, Jáchym and I were given plenty of space to explore some of the longer-running themes in his writing.
