I’ve uploaded an MP3 from BLDGBLOG’s interview with novelist Tom McCarthy, recorded on the 4th of July at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in London. We cover a range of topics, from memory and architecture to trauma and the spatial nature of repetition, via Italo Calvino, Marcel Proust, Friedrich Nietzsche, and William Burroughs – plus a bit of James Joyce – during a long talk about McCarthy’s novel Remainder (previously described here).
The file is available for download at this link; if you’ve never used Megaupload before, just enter the letters that you see, wait 30-40 seconds as per the instructions, and then knock yourself out.
Of course, I’d love to discuss this discussion further, so if you have any thoughts, please feel free to chime in.
Thanks again to Tom McCarthy for coming out for the conversation, and to Joseph Grima and the Storefront for Art and Architecture for hosting it.
