Arnon Grunberg



A journalist asked me: “If your work were architecture, how would you define it?” It was the first time I had to answer this question, and for a few seconds I was flabbergasted.
I’m not sure if I know enough about architecture to make an adequate comparison. (And it's doubtful if an author is the best choice for interpreting his own work.)
On the other hand had I been asked, “what kind of cuisine is your work?” I would have been equally flabbergasted.
Out of a sense of loyalty I'd probably answered: “Italian.”
