Read his riveting essay in the NYT Magazine, Aug. 9, 2018:
Searching for a Lost Odessa — and a Lost Childhood

“Ilya Kaminsky’s long-awaited Deaf Republic is a contemporary epic. Evident throughout is a profound imagination, matched only by the poet’s ability to create a republic of conscience that is ultimately ours, too, and utterly his own—a map of what it means to live.”
— Kevin Young, The New Yorker

“How is it that one poet can make the silence visible? How is that one poet can illustrate – and enlighten – our collective deafness? Deaf Republic is a remarkable book of poems from one of the great symphonic voices of our times. A deep bow.”
— Colum McCann
