Discussion salon, hosted by Henry Oliver, about a recent Belarusian novel translated from the Russian, Red Crosses by Sasha Filipenko. Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Alexievitch said, “If you want to get inside the head of modern, young Russia, read Filipenko.” This is Filipenko’s only novel translated into English.

Red Crosses tells the story of Russia from Stalin to modern times through two characters, an elderly woman with Alzheimers and a young sports referee who has had his life turned upside down. This is a short, profound, and above all gripping novel about modern Russia. Red Crosses was released in English translation in 2021. It explores the bridge between the past and the present and the way history is lived out through individual lives. In extreme circumstances, people have to make life-changing decisions.

Red Crosses, Sasha Filipenko
