Arnon Grunberg



After the screening of the movie “Tirza”, based on my novel "Tirza", a young woman in the audience asked two questions: “Do you have daughters yourself?” And: “What do you think of the music score in this movie?” I answered that I didn't have daughters and that I could live with the music score.
Shortly after this answer the woman left.
She might have been responsible for the music score or perhaps her father was the composer. Probably my answer had disappointed her. Certainly she had been wounded.
A sense of guilt overcame me.
