In her new book, "The history of woman," to tell you the history of the world from the point of view of the women. How did you as a man on this idea?
In the last 25 years, I read to Research very many of the old writings and noticed that it is always a male historiography. And if the woman is found, always stereo-typed. So the need and the will to write a counter-fiction grew in me.
How you put yourself in the Woman's point of view?
I've researched a lot and the sources studied, and in my imagination, familiar. In addition, I do not write for the first Time from the Woman's point of view. As for me, my own identity resides, and my male existence does not interest me.
What kind of reactions have you received so far on the book?
strangely enough, seem to be especially the men irritated.
for men to understand the book as challenging.Feridun Zaimoglu
no critical female voices, the found, you can't tell, as a man, the story of the women?
no – or it will not come to me.
What do you think, why your male audience is irritated?
"the story of The woman" is a feminist book, and it seems that the men see it as challenging.
Understand it the men as an attack?
Yes, it is to be understood as retaliation. But this book is an attack on the rancid man. It's full of stories of heroes and men, in their glory, I can't read it.
