Arnon Grunberg



At the train station I noticed a man in a kilt. Later I saw the same man at my hotel, and after my event I saw him again. It turned out that the man was an author and a singer, named Julian Dawson.
I enjoyed the discussion and the reading last night tremendously. Excellent moderators, intelligent questions and the audience didn’t consist only of octogenarians – nothing against octogenarians by the way.
One of the moderators referred to my novel “The Asylum Seeker” as The Great Göttingen Novel; which made me smile.
