Double room

Tonight Dubravka Ugrešić was awarded the Jean Améry award for essay writing. I gave a speech: a tribute to Dubravka Ugrešić.
But in the morning I went to the town of Königstein, north of Frankfurt. Twenty years ago I stayed in a guesthouse in Königstein. Back then I was a publisher and I had reserved a double room, just in case I met somebody on the train.
This morning I walked in the hills of Königstein, like twenty years ago.
