Arnon Grunberg



On Friday night a new German translation by Rosemarie Still of Jan Wolkers’ novel “Turkish Delight” was presented at Uslar & Rai Buchhandlung in Berlin. (The English edition of this excellent novel is still available on Amazon, I’m not sure about the quality of the translation but it might be worth a try.)
Wolkers’ widow and one of his sons were present as well. The warmhearted moderator based his questions more on the movie than on the novel, but altogether it was a delightful evening.
At the end of the night Wolkers’ widow said: “Don’t live too healthily.”
