Antonin Dvorak’s summer 1893 stay in Spillville, Iowa is the point of departure for this collaboration between Ms. Hampl and artist Steven Sorman.
“Ms. Hampl’s prose is enchanting; Mr. Sorman’s art is elegant.”
The New Yorker
“Ms. Hampl succeeds wonderfully…. Her blending of the personal and the historical recalls Julian Barnes’s “Flaubert’s Parrot.”
