To Mr. Krasznahorkai,
Am delighted to learn of the recent publication of your work by New Directions, and grateful to Mr. Szirtes for the translations. Kudos to you all!

That was the most awesome sentence I have ever heard read aloud. Thank you for writing it, Laszlo.

I am sorry to see Leonard is doing another one of his male-only shows (yesterday too, and I have lost track...)
