    A Long Saturday (English, Hardback) Laure Adler

    George Steiner, born in 1929, is one of the preeminent intellectuals of his generation. Reading in many languages, celebrating the survival of high culture in the face of twentieth-century barbarisms, Steiner has probed the ethics of language and literature with an elegance and authority unmatched by any living critic. A Long Saturday is a series of conversations between Steiner and the French journalist Laure Adler. It addresses questions that have absorbed Steiner over his career, but in a more personal register than he has offered before. Adler draws out Steiner on his boyhood in Vienna and Paris before the war, on his education at Chicago and Harvard, and on his early academic career. Books are a touchstone throughout, of course, but Steiner and Adler’s conversation ranges also over music, chess, psychoanalysis, the place of Israel in Jewish life, and much more. Revealing and exhilarating by turns, this book invites all readers to pull up a chair and listen in on the conversation of a master.
