Arnon Grunberg



Friday night, the opening of the poetry festival in Berlin, Charlotte van den Broeck and I repeated our address on the occasion of the opening of the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2016, which went just fine. A man asked: "Did you write it for this occasion?"
"Not tor this occasion," I answered.
What's an occasion after all? I was impressed by the poet Dagmara Kraus. Take a look at this line for example:

gott will immer alles panieren

Roughly translated : god always wants to bread everything

It's more than poetry, it's theology as well. Undoubtedly God prefers breaded things.
