Maria Bloshteyn

MARIA BLOSHTEYN emigrated from St. Petersburg with her family when she was eight years old and has always been fascinated with how different cultures interact and (mis)understand each other. She is a scholar of comparative literature and cultural studies with a special interest in Dostoyevsky’s impact on American literature (she authored The Making of a Counter-Culture Icon: Henry Miller’s Dostoyevsky). She is also a Russian-English translator (including Alexander Galich’s Dress Rehearsal) and lives in Toronto.
