Abstract

Jan Čulík talks to Karen von Kunes, Professor of Czech Language, Literature and History at Yale University, about her novel "Amongst the Sinners", which was published in English by the Prague-based Práh Publishers. This is a story of a group of immigrants, many of whom are stateless through no fault of their own. They live in a tenement in New York and are gradually subjected to ever stronger hostile pressure by the authorities. The author argues in the book that people try to escape war and oppressing in their native countries by emigrating but usually their arrival in a new country does not solve their problems and may destroy them. The video interview was broadcast on the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from Friday 28th September 2018.
