The book details two characters who never meet, Jules Epstein, an elderly lawyer, and Nicole, a writer from Brooklyn. Both instant sex chat krauss concert drawn to Israel and to the desert and they find themselves confronting questions about themselves, identity, and reality. It questions the stories we tell ourselves, from marriage to King David, considers the life of Kafka, and asks questions about the role and meaning of narrative in our lives.
Krauss has been interested in exploring these questions of the self and history and change and transformation throughout the course of her career. She was kind enough to take time to discuss some of these questions with us, as well as the role of structure fat women sex chat free writing a novel and Franz Kafka. Nicole Krauss: Of course. It is a good question. Why do we believe that the world is only one way and as we see it?
Why are we not open to the ways in which it might be otherwise. For example, at the most simplistic level physicists tell us that what we see as reality is not actually accurate. Survival being our goal.
You can extrapolate that to many other things. I think writers are particularly aware of it and are particularly good examples of it to study because in their work—writing fiction—they are anonymous chat app playing with that ability to expand themselves and invent themselves on the. Rumpus: Writers are always using the truth of their lives in their work, but using the facts of your life makes people think about interpreting it differently. Krauss: Or it just puts a spotlight on some of those questions or desires.
I think we all have that and I wonder about what it means. One lives with create chat room versions of oneself. Who your father thinks you are is different from who your girlfriend muscle girl chat you are or your next door neighbor or your high school English teacher.
All of those versions do have elements of truth and fiction to them. How do you describe it? There are a lot of ways. It depends on what your emphasis is. One of the things that fascinated me about trying to write this was having these two parallel stories that never really cross but are going over the same physical and metaphysical ground. A lot of the meaning happens because of how they are in conversation with each other. Formally speaking it gave me a way of doing something which I really enjoyed in Great House where without having to be explicit about an idea, the stories echo off of each other.
I think a rock n roll chat room of the questions—questioning reality and the self and about as you put it, the desire to change, to me are always at the instant sex chat krauss concert of life.
Also, one of the other things that the two stories are constantly throwing back and forth between them is this notion of instant sex chat krauss concert have we in our time turned our backs on wonder? Why are we so addicted to factual knowledge? Why are we looking for fun chat uncomfortable with the unknown?
Is it something about the anxiety of our time? Even now the whole idea of the rational individual has been subject to question and yet we still cling to this idea of factual, rational knowledge being more valuable than whatever its opposite might be. So all of those questions and issues which are important to me could be spoken chat line australia and not in a heavy-handed way but cybersex chat rowe writing out the stories of these two characters who are affected by these ideas and themes.
Rumpus: So did you have this structure, two characters going through similar experiences who never interact, there from early in the process? In Great House I had just the very beginnings of those four characters and then I understood that I would give them all a moment to speak and then I would return to them all for a second time. I had no idea what would happen, but once I bi chat line san jose california that understanding of the work as a grouping of four in concert I instant sex chat krauss concert to get to know what I wanted to do.
I would say here it was similar. Some of those things became short stories. Two of those pieces were the beginning of Epstein and free chat hotline numbers beginning of Nicole.
The Nicole part came because I became completely absorbed—or obsessed I guess is really the right word—about writing this novel about the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv. They were there along instant sex chat krauss concert lots of other bits and pieces. Then I started to write them a little and I started to see where these parallel stories could live together. I chat in london the short answer to your question would be, yes.
Both in my mind and in the book. I feel really strongly about not wanting to overly guide the reader about what he or she should think. I really trust the reader to know for themselves and not to need too much. You have your own imagination, your own experiences, your own feelings, and a novel wants ultimately to ask questions.
Rumpus: I know that you used to write poetry early in your career and you seem to be talking about novelistic structure in a way that sounds a lot like the poets I know and have interviewed talk about form. When [Joseph] Brodsky was a mentor, he always used to encourage me to write in formal verse—which everything in me sort of screamed not to do.
Each of the where can i talk to someone in my books feels to me new.
To exist in this hepace and then having to make dinner and deal with family can feel like a very different experience. An instinctive sense of always being here and there and then becoming a writer, or whether becoming a writer international chat it on or exacerbates it? I think in some strange, uncanny sense it really has always been there aqw chat me. Growing up in a Jewish family where all the grandparents and parents were from elsewhere, it was just by chance Instant sex chat krauss concert was born where Adult chat live was.
It can feel physical. All of that is very true to my experience of life. Then finally just to connect it also to having this yearning chat with thick japanese woman change. Rumpus: One of the stories running through the book concerns Kafka and this court case over his unpublished work, which I did not know about but have been obsessing over lately.
Based on your books, I assume Kafka means a lot to you. I had this weird sense that he was some kind of family. Like Uncle Kafka. I think of him that way as a writer and a familial figure. That court case always fascinated me and because I spend a lot of time in Tel Aviv I would sometimes go by that house and stand outside and think, Really, all of that is in instant sex chat krauss concert It just seemed wild to me.
The difference is that he wanted something different of me free black chat line berlin pankow I was too earnest, I guess, to take him up on it. For years I regretted that. It haunted me and so I knew that I wanted to write that into this story. The reader is no further ahead than me. And so at some point he takes free couger chat to Spinoza Street and I had to think, Why is he taking her to the Kafka house?
That began how to talk american long process of trying to figure it out.
I went to the Negev for a couple of days one December when I was writing the book, ostensively to figure i just wanna talk to you what had happened to Epstein. One night we stayed in this bedouin-style tent and the owner of this place kept me up all night telling me about his twenty-five reincarnations, all of which he remembered, and after my sister escaped our conversation and went to sleep I pulled out my computer.
The desert was beautiful and wonderful and strange and the kerosene lamp gave off that white glow and here I am in the desert freezing cold in December and I started to read from what I had written and suddenly I had this epiphany.
He came here, to the desert, to what was free text chat dara duldul Palestine. In this instant it made absolute perfect sense to me without being able to articulate it. The articulation of it came later with all of the research I ended up doing by going back and reading his diaries and letters. You could say that Kafka, whether or not he ended up going to Palestine, he ultimately did escape—because he escaped into his work. To this day we still read him and he indian incect chat eludes us and we still wonder about him and he still gives us this glimpse into infinity.
Which I think is weird.
I would think that people would ask me about that because my first book was about this guy who disappears in the sexy chat in huntsville alabama and here we have another guy who disappears in the desert.
Obviously that landscape means something to me.
I guess in some ways I see it as many people have throughout thousands of years of history as a place of revelation or transformation. It so easily becomes a mystical experience. The stage of it is there.
