From the publisher:

This cahier is the result of a collaboration undertaken specially for T”he Cahiers Series,” between Hungarian novelist László Krasznahorkai and German painter Max Neumann. Krasznahorkai, author of “The Melancholy of Resistance” and “War & War, “responds with 14 texts to 14 depictions of a strange and ill-formed creature made by the renowned German painter Max Neumann. The texts speak from within the head of Neumann s creature that seems to be menacing existence itself. The cahier is introduced with a preface by Irish novelist Colm Tóibín.”
