To celebrate the first complete English translation of Uwe Johnson’s magnum opus Anniversaries (New York Review Books, 2018) translator Damion Searls joins critics Renata Adler and Liesl Schillinger for a reading and discussion of this German postwar classic, examining both its significance as unique literary document of New York in the 1960s, and its continued resonance 50 years later in a world of increasing inequality, authoritarianism, and violence.
