This week we speak to Esther Kinsky, recent winner of the Leipziger Buchmesse Prize and author of River from Fitzcarraldo Editions.
We talk about the interplay between memory and writing, turning notes into art, the linguistic acrobatics of multilingualism and trying to apprehend the gap between sensation and the experience of language.
River is available in English: https://fitzcarraldoeditions.com/books/river
