Arnon Grunberg



While editing my new novel in Table d’Hôte on 92nd street I discussed exclamation marks with my editor.
I cherish the opinion that a novel – at least my novels – should consist of maximal three exclamation marks, but just one exclamation mark is desirable.
It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, a good day to go to Central Park, but I had to return home to do some writing and reading.
I decided that when I turn 80 I will write a novella titled “The Exclamation Mark” – this novella will contain twelve exclamation marks.
