The Statue and the Stone
1997

With some surprise from those who listen to me, I've been saying for some time that I'm less and less interested in talking about literature. This may seem like a provocation, the attitude of the writer who, to make himself more interesting, throws out unexpected and gratuitous statements. And it's not like that. The truth is that I even doubt that one can talk about literature as I doubt, with more reasons, that one can talk about painting or that one can talk about music
