Described as 'a rich, reverberative dance with memories of a haunted city' (LA Times), the poems of the prize-winning debut Dancing in Odessa by Ilya Kaminsky, author of Deaf Republic, draw on archetype, myth and Russian literary figures. Tightly realised domestic settings are invigorated with a contemporary relevance, humour and torment, and a distinctive, transcendent music.
Ilya Kaminsky was born in the former Soviet Union and is now an American citizen. He is also the author of Deaf Republic, which was shortlisted for T.S. Eliot Prize and Forward Prize. His work has been translated into more than twenty languages.
