Death in Venice
Saturday, April 10, 2004
Smells can be hard to describe, but a good writer can transport readers pulling them by the nose. Adam Haslett, author of the short story collection You Are Not a Stranger Here, admires Thomas Mann's Death in Venice for its stench. Everything in the story, he says, is "overripe." Produced Jonathan Mitchell.
Fantastic interview. Love you, Alan! You were one of the main influences for me to get back into acting later ...
Really difficult to convey this as a "sound story" and it was done beautifully. Really compelling.
