Arnon Grunberg



A lovely literary evening at the residence of the Dutch ambassador in South Africa.
After the interview a man in his seventies approached me.
"I do satire," he said. "Interested?"
"Very much so," I answered.
He handed me a stapled magazine with the title "Government by Fat Cats for Fat Cats."
The man wasn't a fat cat, that was clear, but probably he very much wanted to become a fat cat before he passed away.
