Harriman faculty member Keith Gessen (George T. Delacorte Assistant Professor of Magazine Journalism) has published a new story in the New Yorker (April 16, 2018), titled "How Did We Come to Know You?" Excerpted from his forthcoming novel, A Terrible Country, the piece tells the story of Andrei, an out-of-work Ph.D. in Russian studies, who returns to Moscow to live with his grandmother. "Thinly veiled autobiography" is a term that crops up in Gessen's interview with David Wallace about the work. You can read the interview here. And listen to Gessen read the story here.
