There is a bunch of people here speaking about literature of the crisis.
“I’m just getting into this subject,” they tell me.
“I have a book on it coming out this year,” I reply.
I’m very happy that I did what I wanted and got the book out before everybody else. I want to define this conversation because otherwise it will go in a wrong direction and will fail to engage with the nation-state.
It’s also very pleasing that a few people came up to me and mentioned my first book.
