New York Review Books Classics has recently published a new translation by Stephen Twilley of Curzio Malaparte’s Diary of a Foreigner in Paris, the journal in which the Italian writer and correspondent recounts his stay in the French capital after World War II. The translator will be joined in conversation by writer Edmund White – who authored the introduction of this edition – and Professor Franco Baldasso from Bard. The conversation will be moderated by NYU Professor Jenny McPhee, translator of Malaparte’s The Kremlin Ball, also for NYRB Classics.
