The Line

Monday, April 12, 2010

Novelist Olga Grushin discusses her latest book, The Line, about the universal symbol of scarcity and bureaucracy that exists wherever petty officials abuse their powers. It tells the story of what happens when a line begins to form for tickets to a concert by an exiled composer returning to Moscow. The ticket window stays closed, but the line continues to grow, and people wait day after day after day.
