CJS welcomes Israeli author Alex Epstein to DU for Spring Qtr 2010!
Alex Epstein, our Schusterman Visiting Artist-in-Residence, will be teaching with Prof. Adam Rovner and participating in several community events during his residency in Denver.

Writer Alex Epstein’s enigmatic short fiction has been hailed by Israeli critics as reminiscent of Borges and Kafka. Certainly, many of his stories can be read as ironic, philosophical parables. Epstein was born in Leningrad in 1971 and moved to Israel in 1980. He has published three novels, three collection of short stories, a book of poetry, a children’s book, and two novellas--one in digital form. He was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize in 2003.
April 1st, 2010
Epstein read several stories from his newly published collection, Blue Has No South (Clockroot Books), and spoke about the process of having his work appear in translation.
