Negative Space: Luljeta Lleshanaku with Eliot Weinberger and Ani Gjika

May 12, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Luljeta Lleshanaku

In Luljeta Lleshanaku‘s new collection of poems, Negative Space, childhood memories of the dictatorship in Albania disperse into a calm that shrouds everyday life with numinous mystery. Lleshanaku joins essayist Eliot Weinberger, and her translator Ani Gjika, for the New York City launch of Negative Space.

“A child who paid for the political sins of her grandparents in Hoxha’s Albania; a young poet who seems to have been writing for a hundred years in a language that’s only been written for a hundred years; an erotic lyricist in the ruins of a state; Luljeta Lleshanaku is the real thing, and as unexpected as an oasis behind a mountain on the moon.”—Eliot Weinberger
