The book inspired my piece Hinoki in 2014. A part of the book is describing the mechanism of construction and destruction which I found really interesting. I took this thought to human relations and made my version of answers following resurrectional cycle that I believe we are living in, to a dance performance. the novel leaves a lot of space for reflection while reading the stories and provokes profound investigation of ones behavior about all relations under the time frame of existence.
Please read but not also this novel From Krasznahorkai coz for me all his books are just so down to the core of existential questions, that I think us as artist we have a lot to learn from him!
