László Krasznahorkai and Max Neumann

Translated from the Hungarian by Ottilie Mulzet

This cahier is the result of a collaboration undertaken specially for The Cahiers Series, between Hungarian novelist László Krasznahorkai and German painter Max Neumann. Krasznahorkai, author of The Melancholy of Resistance and War & War, responds with 14 texts to 14 depictions of a strange and ill-formed creature made by the renowned German painter Max Neumann. The texts speak from within the head of Neumann’s creature that seems to be menacing existence itself. The cahier is prefaced by novelist Colm Tóibín.

In 2013, Sylph Editions published László Krasznahorkai’s The Bill.
