the self is the story we tell ourselves about who we are” she says Krauss extends the idea of the self to Israel painting a portrait of a nation that was created after a deadly war and for the past 70 years has become “a place that is constantly becoming itself” she says “I have an intimate relationship with Israel and it has entered deeply into my psyche When you’re there you feel the pressure of self-invention which is exciting but you also feel the haunting of the past of the events that have taken place over the last thousand years The people there have had to become Israeli and what does that identity mean” says Krauss In Forest Dark that is also a question for Franz Kafka In 1939 Max Brod a friend and biographer of the German-language Jewish writer brought his papers with him to Palestine after fleeing the Nazis The letters and diaries have been the subject of an eight-year-long custody battle between the family of Esther Hoffe Brod’s secretary and the National Library of Israel — who won the case last year Krauss introduces a subplot and another question: what if Kafka had not died in Austria in 1924 and come to Palestine instead “Kafka has always been so important to me I knew about him before I read him — it’s like he was a member of my family somehow In Tel Aviv I did go past the house where his things were kept and I wondered what if there is another story about Kafka I thought of his extended life when I was in the Israeli desert in a Bedouin camp trying to write That’s when it hit me that he must have come here to what was then Palestine Later there was evidence in his letters and diaries that pointed to the same One can question again and again of how ‘Jewish’ a writer he was but I think he belonged to no one” says Krauss who like Kafka is often viewed by her community as a Jewish writer a custodian of their history and their stories For her part Krauss lets Nicole address that uneasy mix of belonging and ownership that colours her relationship with Israel choosing to think of herself as a writer of stories as opposed to an author who gets wrapped in the myths surrounding a book “I don’t feel any kind of cultural ethical responsibility maybe I did when I was younger but not anymore But after the work is published the writer has no control and the figure of the author appears about whom people have ideas and the book itself becomes many things to many people” she says For all the latest Lifestyle News download shlf1314n Express App More Related NewsWritten by Anushree Majumdar | Published: November 19but producer Ramesh Taurani denies it.
