Arnon Grunberg



My godson participated in a snowboard competition. He was second. I'm not sure if he was proud of himself. To be honest, I'm not sure if a second place is reason to be proud of yourself. But I'm definitely more competitive than he is. He declared: "I didn't want to be first, the other kids were so anxious that they would lose. That's why I didn't want to be first."
Perhaps he was honest, or he has discovered language as tool to save face.
