Over at The White Review, the poet and translator George Szirtes interviews Laszlo Krasznahorkai. Szirtes has translated a number of Krasznahorkai’s works, so it’s a must-read. A highlight:
QTHE WHITE REVIEW — Why is it so important for you to map things so clearly? Why is it so important to specify precise location?
ALÁSZLÓ KRASZNAHORKAI — Because it’s always important to know where things are. And a thing can only precisely be where it is.
Well worth a few minutes out of your day.
