Arna's award-winning book is titled Elegy on Kinderklavier, and here is what the judges wrote about it:
In Elegy on Kinderklavier, attention is salvation. These stories are not afraid to stare in unblinking and finely grained detail at the great sad problem of being alive. One is at first anxious when the story does not look away from the tremendous emotional, structural, and physical violence of contemporary life. Then one is thrilled, terrified, and at last comforted, since what is left, when this awesome attention has dissolved everything else, is a sense of goodness in life that's hard enough to break bones.Here is his acceptance speech from the spring (22:00 - 37:00).
