Today the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) aired an interview with
John Felstiner a biographer of Paul Celan. It was extraordinary for me
anyway, to hear Felstiner read his translations of several Celan poems
and discuss the life and times of the poet. Czernowitz was mentioned
quite a few times. The interview will be available to download as an
mp3 podcast on Monday this coming at:


Thus, tomorrow, you should be able to download the interview and play
it on your computer. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
