Arnon Grunberg



The first performance of “Am Ziel” in Amsterdam -- the theater was half full, the director appeared to be happy and my dressing room is marvelous.
I was reminded of Leonard Cohen’s song “Dress Rehearsal Rag”: "Cover up your face with soap, there,/ now you're Santa Claus./
And you've got a gift for anyone/ who will give you his applause./
I thought you were a racing man,/
ah, but you couldn't take the pace./ That's a funeral in the mirror/ and it's stopping at your face."
