"When I read Jeffery Eugenides’ novel "Middlesex," I never thought that I would meet the author - let alone that I would celebrate winning the Pulitzer Prize for the book with him in Prague. Being an intern for “The Prague Writer’s Festival” I found myself befriending world-renowned authors in the most surprising of circumstances."
- Eric Murdoch, NYU Prague student
