Yuriy Tarnawsky Presents his Novels: “Warm Arctic Nights” and “The Iguanas of Heat”
Presenter(s): Dr. Yuriy Tarnawsky
October 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The author will read excerpts from both novels. “Warm Arctic Nights” is probably the only literary work that, from a child’s point of view, describes the fate of Ukrainians in the pre-WWII Poland, the WWII German-occupation years in Ukraine, and finally their migration to the West. In “The Iguanas of Heat,” a woman possessed by an inexplicable hatred for her husband, plans his death on their forthcoming trip to Mexico. Yuriy Tarnawsky is an author of some three dozen books of poetry, fiction, drama, essays, translations, and a linguist as well. To quote Alain Arias-Misson, “His writing has that ever rarer quality of a poetic language, the intensity and purity of which render his stories unforgettable.”
