Tulli, Magdalena

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1955-    ) Polish author whose work interfuses mythopoeisis with experimental applications of topoi typical of modern Fantastika. In Sny i kamienie (1995; trans Bill Johnston as Dreams and Stones 2004), a great City self-creates in the heart of the complex culture of a complex continent; W czerwieni (1998; trans Bill Johnston as In Red 2011) follows the "life" of a small Polish town through the whole of a phantasmagoric twentieth century; Tryby (2003; trans Bill Johnston as Moving Parts 2005) is a metafiction in which a novel takes over from its author; and in Skaza (2006; trans Bill Johnston Flaw 2007) flood of refugees pours out of a streetcar into an unnamed city. Her work has been likened to that of Bruno Schulz. [JC]
