An interview with the writer [nederlands]
Q: Why do you write so strangely? Is that really necessary?
A: I write the way i write, it is a rhythm that is within me. I write the way i write because i don't want to write like everyone else. I let my rhythm out. Sometimes calm, on a leash, and other days wild and loose. And yes, that is really necessary.
Q: Who are your favorite writers?
A: I don't have favorite writers anymore. I used to, i read everything by John Irving, Doris Lessing, whatever. Now i read books, stories, pieces of text, fragments, sentences, billboards. Je m’en fou.
Q: I'm told you once came onto the stage on a motorcycle?
A: I'll tell you: you shouldn't let anyone tell you anything. But i think people are confusing me with the other Celsius, the magician who once sawed Pistolen Paultje in half. No family either, by the way.
Q: Have you ever done something you shouldn't? And what carries a hefty penalty?
Q: What exactly, if I may ask?
A: You may, but i'm not gonna answer that of course.
Q: Why not?
A: Are you ignorant or just blonde?
Q: I don't really think that's a nice question. In fact, I find it quite insulting.
A: Was it a question? I didn't think so.
Q: I think it would be better to end the conversation. Your writing career ends here, because I'm going to publish a scathing piece about you and your ridiculous writing.
A: Thank you!
This conversation took place on October 7, 2019 in the lobby of the Colonial hotel in Klotestad. This is the literal text, which was recorded by the writer himself and later transcribed. The interviewer declined any further cooperation and does not wish to be named. We have not been able to find the destructive piece, but what is not there can always come.
