"Have I feel like we're going back and forth between ideas and the historical Oracle drama. I want to hear more about the visit. So what happens. Tell us about this also Triangle in a way sort of gloomy love triangle between salt. Uh Simone de Beauvoir and Claude. Lanzmann who's part of this visit and I don't mean that just for the gossip factor. I mean what impact did that have on their ideas and their political thinking right so each one of them actually represents presents a actually defend intellectual possibility. And this is why you know this visit is not simply the the personal drama so actually with Lonzo Server Claude Lanzmann. He's the Managing Editor of the Journal and Final Flying Minister of Foreign Affairs. It is an operation ration- they're going around. The world are doing a lot of noise. Die Not many NGOs many newspapers at a time human rights all of did not exist in the fifties and sixties. That was his all start. There in London was really the muscle behind that and will voire as well and Lanzmann read. anti-semites Mike enjoy tales in his memoir and ultra interview. Told me and that's he begins to understand his own other. He's all otherness and for him. The solution to what happened to the Jews. The Holocaust Zionism and he is a staunch. Tiny's lensman if used to his career win in Israel feel making not especially as is is philmont on sal idea Is bringing this genealogist. That's where he's coming from from him he needs to come in recognize Zayn Ism. So that's he's stake in the store south on the other hand understands that he's task is philosophical and that's the implication that he needs to provide a statement about Victimization who is more victim. The Jews who escaped to Israel innocent established is sort of Israel after the Holocaust or the Palestinians so for human needs to create an hierarchy between two victims. Can you create. It's an ethical hierarchy. Can you say this person is more victim. Now there's and then he's he needs to get more than the other turns out. That otherness is is is not the horizontal category. You cannot stack others. They just exist in relationship to each other and that's very disappointing thing for their upside to to hear but the visit for them is about that. The Syrians the Jordanians. The all right and the Lebanese very strongly suggesting and urging him to come come up and clarify. How come when you talk about Algeria Rhodesia or any other place? It's clear to you that settler colonial is the bad guy and when you come to him all intellectual categories that apply to apply to Palestine cannot produce the same ethical statement. How come they succeed in everywhere in the Third World but failing Palestine? Can you clarify it. So the purpose of the visit for him is to come come up with a statement about that. In the form of five thousand page special issue of the Journal with his preface the Journal will be written five hundred pages. Jews five hundred pages Arabs and Israeli Arabs and his introduction so they fly first to Lanzmann arranges. The whole thing is a lot of back and forth fourth. People don't want to participate but you know fascinating story in its own right recommended reading but then in the end he comes to Egypt. And it's it's a love story. I mean the during Egypt was he could not believe how much they've Read and translated and engaged nor in the world. He's being translated engaged to such a degree that he meets. Go Up the Nassir and this is like two months before the nineteen sixty seven war of his a lot of tension already In Our series engaged Nassir knows these categories. He knows what's out there is doing. He did think that he's going to get the book just like the one accustomed got in Cuba so he did think there's something for me but otherwise it's a it's a very successful visit because he we start. There did recognize Egyptian revolution. He did validated fat. That's a proper revolutionary who was also blind to a lot of its problems could you know was not blind to the problem especially to the problem of Patriarchy which is eventually what would bring this entire edifice down here. Experience with with Patriarchy was was was such that She she immediately took sides and she took the size of Lanzmann. Yeah I like the part where you said worry right well. Yeah it's good that he's against female genital mutilation but women live in this. It's repressive repetitive. Cycle of I don't know you know the not a very meaningful existence right so there. Is there Egypt right so she takes. Sides Atlantic on semantic side but solitaire is unmoved in dynamic between the three of them then they go to the Gaza Strip disaster of Trips Arthur does not provide the statement that the Palestinians ends one but he does provide some statesmen about the right of refugees to return which alienates Lanzmann landsman also so that he's really moved by the meeting with Palestinian seen kids in refugee camps and the conditions there and he takes a picture with them with a Palestinian flag and he asked the journalists to expose the fields. He doesn't want any of that Lanzmann ask. Yeah landsman ask them. And and then they go to to Israel when they land in Israel. Solitaire is For for lack of a better term is really rude his shutdown. He doesn't WanNa meet Actually the Israelis not warming up to them easing salting. Everybody everybody. He met from the scientists in the Vitamin Institute to Egalitarian you know. They meet Eagle on in his in his boot. In Asia and Beauvoir says was what a lovely guy and he says well. It's the most sure monthly cutter Fascist. I've ever met lovely fascist met and you you know the cancel a meeting with Ben. Gurion the cancel me to a meeting with Tuck robbing and the Israeli press. You know what is going on here. Eventually the La- one of the last night's before the end of the visit he does meet a Holocaust survivors. Who are fluent in French and then he begins to see? See the possibility of Zionism. Exactly like what. Lanzmann was thinking the possibility of Zionism as a form of wreak thinks he stands at least basically exercise or project recreating a new self after the Holocaust and how much meaning it gave to these people and that also in line with his philosophy so he is quite confused and by the time he leaves the Middle East. Everybody's angry with him. The Israelis are with him. The ads are furious. Everybody's disappointed any. It's about to be the sixty seven war and he special issues supposed to become coming out. Lance actually left the visit before because he was He father Took sides so he's breaking breaking down the party the and saying look you guys go together. I'm done with you. So Lanzmann left because he thought Sartor was going too much towards the Arab side but in the end searchers remembered in the Arab world is the one who eventually supported Zionism. Maybe it was a closet Zionist all along and Edward sites and he was always Zionist. which isn't he wasn't You know for that is a big trauma. So I'm you know they The story of the actual story of watts artists engagement in the world has been distorted because it's a traumatic story. The difference between the Israelis and the odds is very simple. The Arabs did not construct the project peration and self gracious on Sartor did did construct. The project started these rallies did not so the Israeli disappointment for them. It's a PR thing is going to side with us. One more point. He's he's not whatever for their ads. Few Not GonNa side with US everything that we've done here in the last twenty years maybe doesn't worth very much. Then the interesting thing about it is that is. He's just predated. The six six Day War by a few weeks and you know going back to said in the beginning of this conversation about the cultural defeat of of nineteen sixty seven was so interesting to you in many ways it was a prelude to that cultural defeat before sixty seven didn't do you see it as having preliminary symptoms of the same the very intellectual and then a military collapse right right I realized when I saw that these that maybe it's a stable category a small platform that can allow us because it's kind of everywhere that can allow us to to understand something about the quality of the did not write this book. I'm writing is now two a different book but It allows us to say something to understand what was collapsed. And give you the name. And that's the revolutionary project. It's not simply yeah. Political project is the effort to create a new Arab men and women a new subject to move away from colonialism but to create in our world which is in harmony with world with a contemporary world. And that is a successful in that and losing that is has been for. What would have happened if Carter hadn't had this fall from grace in the Arab world? Do you think there would have been a deepening deeper and more abiding impact of his ideas throughout the Arab world. Or would you say well. Well you know there were other political and sociological forces at play. He wasn't the only one. Rob was inevitable isn't it. I think it was inevitable in the end of the day. The fall from grace. I don't think that starts as the most important and existential team is the most important thing I engage it because it allows us to see a lot of things not because in an of itself Elf. It has a major it it's everywhere but it's it's not like you know Relationship with them would have continued the revolutionary tradition. In fact we know ready years. Before nineteen sixty-seven there are critical intellectual beginning to spell out the demise. Mizo Nassar is. It's a messianic movement. It's really about rebirth. So almost Christian in its theological urge to create out of these trauma. New Our men and women it has all the properties to political. Theology is politics of salvation and when this politics collapse Sart or no Sarsour doesn't doesn't matter when this politics will actually begin to get the debris one of one of the things you get is the counter movement of Islamic fundamentalism which is in itself a mirror project of nurseries. It's also about the born again Muslim it's also about overcoming trauma recreating and it's it would eventually would bring us all the way to to Isis. Could we ask now.

There's an in through the glass door and involuntary cry of Henry for. She was nervous while the chauffeur thought. Dark things me below and my voice reassuring her at our table groping through the names of Spanish dishes wrestling with the fall to English of our waiter she awesome and she do not wish to see and was it because my reputation had outdistance me then are modest half bottle of some Spanish wine and her account of how she took wing Garas as a tonic. And how her daily does inebriated her of my fears ears. That are waiter and myself should have to carry her down the stairs to the proud car. And the chauffeur's face when he saw what had been done of my trip to Africa to give society leisure to forget perhaps we were substitutes for each other so so that hurry. Young man was not myself but someone else who in her imagination was toying with a Spanish omelet in my place while I began to know that it was not her at any rate whom I would have sitting opposite me but someone else perhaps the bill paid and in the car again with no mishap frosting onto the theater and my fears for.

"Your memoirs. You draw portrait of Sarcoma at the time. He was reading nausea. You picture him as being obsessed by what he calls his crabs by anguish. You seem to have been at the time the choice member of the couple yet. In your novels you reveal preoccupation of death that we never find in such in a way. SORTA thought he was immortal. He had staked everything on his literary work and on the hope that his work would survive whereas for me you into the fact that my personal life will disappear. I'm not the least bit concerned about with my work is likely to last. I've always been aware that the ordinary things of life disappear once day to day activities wants impressions whence past experiences. Such with that life could be caught in a trap of words and I've always felt that words weren't life itself but a reproduction of life of something dead searches peak in every one of your novels alls we find a female character who is misled by false notions and who's threatened by madness. Lots of modern women alike that women are obliged to play at being what they aren't to play for example it being great courtesans to fake their personalities. They're on the brink of neurosis. I feel very sympathetic towards women of that type. They interest me more than the well-balanced housewife or mother. There are of course women who interest me even more those who are both true and independent who work and create. None of your female characters are immune in from love. You like the romantic element. Love is a great privilege real love which is very rare. Enriches the lives of men and women women who experience it in your novels. It seems to be the women. I'm thinking of Francois's and she came to stay in an in the mandarins who to experience at most. The reason is that despite everything women give more of themselves in love because most of them don't have much else to absorb them mm-hmm perhaps there are also capable of deep sympathy which is the basis of love.

"Before the second surgery. The cancer is speculative women cut out parts of themselves to be rid of that speculation. Breasts Uteri ovaries ovaries tubes services. All kinds of glands. A surgeon friend describes surgery as just intense meticulous grooming that we being primates groom socially get the surfaces of our bodies scrubbed and shaved and cleaned leaned by one another so going into the body to clean it of something. That shouldn't be there which might be there. But it's not even exactly visible of grooming a bit further along on the continuum toward complete prophylactic self removal. I am not not interested in depictions of the actual ocean. I don't WanNa look at beautiful pictures of it. I'm not interested in beauty. I'm I'm interested in the ways that people deal with the ocean. I am interested in forms that are so large you can't see the boundaries so you just have to believe in them. They demand faith. I'm interested in people for whom that faith is a problem. Uh when I was sixteen I had an internship at a local hospital that included two days and histology the histology. I didn't know quite how to teach high school student about medicine so he took a bin of Uteri out of a refrigerator and handed me one. It was so much smaller than expected like a small yellow onion or a withered pair but it was reverie like shirk not like a pair at at all. I remember that uterus felt in my hand. Maybe it wasn't even the surgery that made me need that Tattoo. Yeah to maybe. It was just that we moved out of the old house and I refused to give up my view. Well I'm never going to lose that you now. My husband also wants a tattoo. He wants the dates of his mothers and fathers lives on his body which has to have something to do with the fact that he hates cemeteries now. He wants to become a gravestone even though he threw his parents ashes into the ocean. Uh I was sad when I left that first house too. I was sad. The wisdom of my body turned me sideways in bed in the new house. It's counter intuitive to run toward the terrible thing to dive under the wave to let it get on top the view where it might master you. But that's the entire job. After my Dino Carcinoma was found. My husband ran toward it. He didn't do it with me. He did it for me the week before the surgery I stopped thinking about it. I could feel myself golf.

I developed a chronic autoimmune disorder that was rare and hard to explain and even hard hard to say whenever I told anyone the name of it my first instinct was either to apologize for having made them listen to so many syllables are are to immediately explained that it wasn't as bad as the name made it sound. There's such an allure now to naming what's newly wrong with me. I don't have to explain cancer a decade or so ago. My gynecologist asked me whether I used protection when I had sex the I counted the man. I'd had unprotected sex with that year and divided by two on one hand. I did it because I was immortal. Immortal unbreakable because I'd come relatively unscathed out of something that might have killed me. So unprotected sex was my just reward on the other hand I should already have died in my twenties but Western medicine had saved me and I was trying to correct the course. My life has changed since then now I want to stay here for my son for as long as he needs me. My husband's mother died when he was forty but he still needs her.

A what she smiled at my failure to grasp what any Maltese teenager would have understood. She explained that the artist had worried he would be unable to carve harv the face so he left it until the very end he stayed up late fell asleep in church and woke the next next morning to find. The face had been carved he had forgotten everything. I missed being able to forget everything I have a child. My life consists of keeping trillion details in my head and I get most of them right but not every every day enough of them and then have to deal with my fuck ups with the child right there next to me. Learning what happens when something and gets in. That's not deliberate. It's the trillion details that have gotten in the way of that non-deliberate saying I think and it's hard to demarcate an area in which the trillion aren't allowed.

I don't remember anything that my body felt. Just the blue on top as if I were supine under the water facing up and toward the ledge I'd slipped from but I don't know how I'd have gone supine and from sitting there and that's why I think of this as an out of body experience I wasn't aware of my body just what I could could see and what I could see was geometrically improbable. Then I was out of the water under coughing.
