Having finished all immediate consignments, and with one of my most recent book translations (Imre Kertész’s Detective Story) officially published in both the US and the UK, I obtained several books to catch up on some bits of reading for sheer pleasure.
"Lot has long been a hero of mine. A morally charged hero, which is why he has such a difficult fate—a true person." – Imre Kertész talks to János Kőbányai about Hungarian literature and his forthcoming book.
"The riot police come by bus with packed lunches, like a bunch of tourists from the countryside. After a quick city tour, they form a cordon, march down the Road of Revolution, and barricade Republic Square. Bobby-soxers pin flowers on their shields and offer them cakes. It gets smeared all over their visors."
To detest the sin and to love the sinner: this is how we can define the practice of love as recommended by the Gospel. Clearly, this also means that the attitude of the Pharisees is wrong in as much as they identify the sinner with the sin.
