Urgency and Patience

Jean-Philippe Toussaint
Translated by Edward Gauvin

Both a sense of urgency and a goodly amount of patience are required for any writer to produce a novel. Moving between these two poles, Jean-Philippe Toussaint presents a series of short essays on the art of writing, both his own and that of writers he has admired, such as Kafka, Beckett, Dostoyevsky, and Proust.
