Gisteravond werd de Hongaarse schrijver László Krasznahorkai bekroond met de Man Booker International Prize. In 2011 dook The New Yorker in zijn imponerende oeuvre. “Krasznahorkai pushes the long sentence to its furthest extreme, miring it in a thick, recalcitrant atmosphere, a dynamic paralysis in which the mind turns over and over to no obvious effect.”
