In LitCast Slovakia #21 the award-winning writer and journalist Irena Brežná talks to Julia Sherwood about rebelling against the dogma of writing in her native language, the importance of maintaining an outsider’s perspective and avoiding the trap of assimilation. She also talks about her political birth during the Prague Spring of 1968, about combining writing with activism as well as feminism.
