„In the case of authors who live outside their native linguistic geography, questions about belonging threaten to obscure other biographical details. The mythic foundations of their work disappear completely from view. […] One does not read an author’s texts, but rather, the biography written onto his body. Genealogy substitutes for biography. The body of the text – with its own patterns, its own concealed forewords, disappears behind the image of the author. What motivates this type of reading? Fear of wonder? Fear of understanding or not understanding, a sense of strangeness, real or imagined?”
