'Literature is about the human condition, it’s about us, it’s about our struggles, it’s about our existence, our relationships. I’m very interested in those kinds of important, big questions.'
'I always dreamed of studying literature, because it reflects our worlds in so many unexpected ways. English is the most internationally relevant language to study. Some writers, like Joseph Conrad, started writing in English and not in their mother tongue. Why? Just in search of a broader public? How does his choice of language influences his books?'
