By the Ko?cielski Prize-winning author of Dream and Stones, In Red is the gripping cautionary tale in which real and unreal combine explosively, making us question the nature of the work itself. Set in an imaginary fourth partition of Poland, In Red retraces the turbulent history of the twentieth century in a labyrinth of greed, inheritance, and entropy, enacting?word by tremulous word?the claustrophobia of a small town from which there seems to be no escape. Never have Tulli¢s trademark precision of language and her crystalline storytelling been put to such brilliant use.
Magdalena Tulli's other novels include Dreams and Stones and Moving Parts, nominated for the 2006 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and Flaw, shortlisted for the 2007 Nike Prize, Poland's most prestigious literary award. Tulli is also the translator of Proust and Calvino into Polish. She lives in Warsaw.
Bill Johnston is the Chair of the Comparative Literature Department at Indiana University. His translations include Wies?aw My?liwski¢s Stone Upon Stone, and Magdalens Tulli¢s Dreams and Stones, Moving Parts, and Flaw. His 2008 translation of Tadeusz Ró?ewicz¢s new poems won the inaugural Found in Translation Prize and was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Poetry Award.

The increasingly desperate narrator clambers over rooftops and through underground passages, watching helplessly as his characters reappear in...
Ein labyrinthartiges Hotel in Osteuropa, ein Seiltänzerpärchen, ein deutscher Geschäftsmann namens Feuchtmaier, ein Kind und eine Handvoll weiterer bizarrer Charaktere, die sich alle äußerst sonderbar verhalten; dazu ein rätselhafter Erzähler in seinem hilflosen Bemühen, ihre Geschichte in den Griff zu bekommen - das ist das Personal, das wie Marionetten an unsichtbaren Fäden auf einer...
Tulli nie dalaby sie zawlaszczyc ani czcicielom formy, ani moralistom. W CZERWIENI to nie ksiega snow, ich opis czy wykladnia. To sen. Jak stworzony dla kogos, kto byl juz wszedzie i wszystko widzial.
Hermann Wallmann, "Frankfurter Rundschau"
In sculpted prose reminiscent of Bruno Schulz, Magdelena Tulli tells the story of the emergence of a great city; in her hands myth, metaphor, history and narrative are combined to magical effect. Dreams And Stones is about the growth of a city, and also about all cities; at the same time it is not about cities at all, but about how worlds are created, transformed and lost through words alone.
