Award-winning author Andrey Kurkov is lending his voice to lift up other writers.
Kurkov, who recently won a National Book Critics Circle award and has been nominated for the International Booker Prize, has written the introduction to an upcoming essay by Nariman Dzhelyal.
Dzhelyal is a Crimean Tatar leader who was arrested in September 2021 for a crime he says he hasn't committed and imprisoned.
His essay, "Dignity cannot be annexed," appears in the spring 2023 issue of the Index on Censorship magazine.
And coming out tomorrow: the book On Grief: Love, Loss, Memory by Jennifer Senior.
The book is based on her Pulitzer Prize-winning essay on the aftermath of one man's death in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.
Senior spoke with Morning Edition's Rachel Martin about the story.
