Arnon Grunberg in De Markten in Brussels
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Arnon Grunberg had to cancel his visit to Brussels in June, but he did promise to come by in the autumn. On December 13th, the time will have come!
Arnon Grunberg resided in Lublin for two weeks in the beginning of 2012 and wrote the citybook A Reported Offence about this city.
In the story, 24 year-old Danuta Kalinowska reports Arnon Grunberg, ‘a man without morals’, to the police. ‘First he did to me what you do not do with a virtuous woman, and then he did that to my mother.' He drank their vodka and their soup. He made them sing folksongs. And various items ‘disappeared’ from their home…
Grunberg will read from his citybook and will be interviewed by Gudrun De Geyter (VRT Klara) about his experiences in Poland and about how his story came to be .
