Arnon Grunberg



A friend of mine, and a good friend of my mother, is among other things a masseur. But today I discovered that he’s also the best cheesecake maker in Amsterdam and its surroundings.
One of his projects is to massage sex workers – my friend is into healing. Obviously he’s not a novelist, a novelist wants to make people sick.
I said: “You should not offer the sex workers a back rub, you should offer them your cheesecake.” He was not amused and his son said: “Everybody needs a massage, especially sick people.”
