I really wanted to find a way to publish something on Ellmann and Rushdie, and I did. The article will come out in the leading literary journal in Ukraine. I just finished making requested changes.
There’s even some Russo and Sam Quinones in the article.
And since it’s in Ukrainian, this is the first piece of mine my mom has been able to read.
Finally, being Ukrainian is coming in useful professionally.
P.S. Come to think of it, it’s not true that being Ukrainian hasn’t been useful. Whose name is it easier to remember in the context of Hispanic Studies, mine or somebody named Gonzalez?
