Platonov in Bethnal Green-Dash Arts Cafe-30/11/12 (Email from 24th November 2016)

Dear all,

Robert Chandler has sent us this, for your information:

I will be very grateful if you could forward this to anyone who might be interested - especially if they live in East London.  There are several interesting people taking part, including the theatre director Tim Supple and the composer/Shostakovich expert Gerard McBurney.  And I will of course be reading and speaking myself.

And here are details of 2 new Platonov publications:
1.    http://www.housesparrowpress.com/product/a-sparrows-journey/
John Berger is a well-known art critic, poet, novelist, etc.
2.   And  three of Platonov's plays:

There is also a long article about Platonov by me in last week's Times Lit. Supplement (18 Nov).  It is behind a paywall - but anyone can look here and see this striking illustration.

There will also be a Platonov evening at the London Review of Books shop on 31 January.  Details should be on their site soon.
