101: Sjón (CODEX:1962) & Christian Kracht’s THE DEAD

All the way from Iceland, Sjón joins the guys in a Damn Library annex, aka the FSG offices. The conversation ranges from ghosts to unicorns, from golems to Frankensteins, from self-representation to translation, as they discuss the maximalist, fabulist fable Codex:1962. They also talk Christian Kracht’s The Dead, the light and the dark, and the wisdom/folly of using historical figures, amongst other subjects.
