Arnon Grunberg

Grunberg Museum

On Monday the 11th of October 2010 the temporary Grunberg museum in De Slegte Arnhem will be opened, by Arnon Grunberg himself. The museum is a collection of Grunberg collector's items. Among other things the desk at which Grunberg wrote his debut novel Blue Mondays is shown.
Speaking of collector's items, 2010 marks the 20th anniversary of De Machiavellist and for this occasion a T-shirt was produced. Click here for more info.

Besides the opening of the museum on the same evening two bibliophilic Grunberg books will be presented by Arnon Grunberg's own publishing house Norman Bates, the play Our Pope (with a translation in Polish by Karol Lesman) and Grunberg's Miracle Cream, a report about importing medicinal creams from a monastery in Montenegro. It includes the freshly imported creams.
Arnon Grunberg has a conversation with Karol Lesman about the translation of Our Pope and Marek Hłasko.
Cees Renckens, president of the Vereniging tegen de Kwakzalverij, reveals if Grunberg's Miracle Cream is to be trusted.

Also the new Grunberg magazine Blauwe Maandagen presents itself.
