Klag

arnon grunberg © Eva PelArnon Grunberg wrote A Reported Offence in Lublin, in which the unforgettable main character Danuta Kalinowska lodges a complaint about an oh-so-friendly author from The Netherlands: ‘He said he had always thought that he liked hotels, but that now he knew that he was in search of warmth, human warmth. And he claimed that Polish warmth is the real human warmth. He talked about filthy, human love, but you and I know that there is nothing filthy about human love.’
