Reviews

"Walpurgis Night is a burning drink of a play made from equal parts violence and comic relief . . . Schwartz's translation is impeccable. Her attention to the brutality of Erofeev's language, his comedic timing, and the sounds of words as they are spoken will likely make the work a classic outside of Russia."--Ethan Alexander Perets, Words Without Borders--Ethan Alexander Perets "Words Without Borders "
Finalist for the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages (AATSEEL), for the 2015 Best Translation into English category.-- (10/15/2015)
