Wu Ming on “the writer” & Altai

“The figure of the writer is marketed as an individual genius, a character that you can see in talk shows on the telly, you can find in the pages of a newspaper giving his or her opinion on pretty much anything. And usually writers, especially novelists, will write about anything. They don’t know f**k all about it, but they give their high opinion on it.”

In H2 2015 verschijnt Wu Ming’s Altai, vertaald door Jan van der Haar
