Arnon Grunberg



Tonight, after my reading I had a discussion with a charming journalist working for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
He believed that the euro was a big mistake, because the Germans were paying for the Greek and the Italians who don't believe in the nation-state. (Obviously, this is not my take on it.)
He admitted that he was longing for a catastrophe. The longer we are waiting for the catastrophe the bigger the catastrophe will be.
It was an enlightening statement. We should never underestimate the longing for the Apocalypse. Often rather talented people cannot control this passion.
