Criticism is part of being in the marketplace. If you can't take a bit of criticism, you shouldn't bother publishing a book.

I don't take much notice of reviews now - obviously you'd like to have straight worship but you're never going to get that.

Most books reviews aren't very well-written. They tend to be more about the reviewer than the book.

Ultimately, it's about the quality of the writing whatever style you are writing.

As an author, I realise, you're on your own. You have to do everything you can to help The Book. If I make sure people know it's out there, they can make up their own minds whether they want to read it.

One of my proudest achievements is that when an authoritative book about Hungarian literature came out about a decade ago, there was a little article about me which said I was a Hungarian writer but pretending not to be.

You don't really have to go anywhere in particular in New York City to have a good time. In every part of town, there's always something going on. It helps to know people there, too, because everything changes so fast, and they will be able to point out what's hot this month.

What is the art world? I never really understood. I started doing this stuff to do what I want to do. Not to be this or that.

I always have a lot of things going on because some things take years to make and others take five minutes. I like that there's always something going on. Working doesn't have such a momentous feel - like it's all or nothing.
