Maria Tumarkin

Listen to Maria Tumarkin

Maria Tumarkin reads from Otherland: A Journey With My Daughter, a personal exploration back to her roots in Russia and the Ukraine. From trains to alcoholism, it’s a trip into the post-Soviet world that earned her a shortlisting for the Nettie Palmer Award for Non-fiction.

The video concludes with Tumarkin answering questions about how she came to write the book and how travel with her daughter so profoundly marked the experience.
