Cees Nooteboom Interview Parts 1 & 2

July 4, 2011

How better to celebrate the excellent and ongoing publicity for The Foxes Come At Night than posting our interview with the inimitable Cees Nooteboom, recorded when he visited London for the London Review Bookshop’s World Literature Weekend.

Here he discusses his new collection, the DEDICA Festival he was guest of honour of in Italy this year, Spanish politics, the late Patrick Leigh Fermor and his notion of the perfect hotel.

In the second part of the interview Nooteboom discusses his pilgrimages to writers’ and poet’s graves and his belief that reading poetry will make you a better writer. He also talks about his experiences in Berlin when the wall came down, which will be recounted in Notes From Berlin, which Maclehose Press will publish in 2012.
