Esther Kinsky and Caroline Schmidt present GROVE

000005 (1)

In Grove an unnamed narrator, recently bereaved, travels to Olevano, a small village south-east of Rome. It is winter, and from her temporary residence on a hill between village and cemetery, she embarks on walks and outings, exploring the banal and the sublime with equal dedication and intensity. Seeing, describing, naming the world around her is her way of redefining her place within it.

Here, author Esther Kinsky shares photographs of the places that inspired Grove and gives a reading, followed by a short talk by the translator, Caroline Schmidt on the experience of translating Grove.
