    This is a great interview with Marta Merajver-Kurlat who happens to be connected to me on most of my social network. She’s a great writer and person and I truly enjoyed this detailed interview with her you gave me the opportunity to! Thank you very much!

    I as well read some of your other interviews and enjoyed them equally. You’re having a truly inspiring and in many ways helpful blog worth reading and I’m now one of your followers!

    Morgen and Marta,
    This was a fabulous interview–one of the best I’ve read. Marta I admire your diversity as a writer and envy your knowledge of five languages. I have enough trouble with English :). Good luck in all your future endeavors. Morgen, You did an excellent interview with this multi-talented guest.

      Micki, thank you for your kind words. I’ve heard a lot about you from Linda, Tracy, and Pat, but would like to exchange with you directly.
      Morgen has the rare talent to bring out things that perhaps would be left unsaid.

    Congratulations Marta and Morgen. This was a superb interview. I have had only a few radio interviews and know a great interviewer makes everything flow so smooth. Marta is such an interesting guest-Thank you for sharing.

      Rosemary, in my experience, Morgen is the first interviewer that has given me the opportunity to really “talk.” I very much appreciate your comments.

    Hello Morgen,
    Thank you for conducting such an outstanding interview with Marta. A lot of ground was certainly covered here and writers from novice to long standing professionals will find the insights and perspectives discussed of imense value. I would love to see a Part II to this interview in the future.

      Bryan, thank you for your encouragement. Morgen’s extraordinary skills as an interviewer drew out the content.

    I was a student of English Language in Marta’s classes before the Big Bang came to pass.

    does it give or delete a notion of time?

    to me, in spite of Hawking, there was a before and after.

    because we are people and, as such, finite. And encounters do change the course of our lives.

    I should cherish the like of another clash.

    (congrats Morgen on your astronomic interview!)

      Jorge, you have definitely surpassed your teacher, which makes me extremely proud. It’s every good teacher’s dream to see her students reach beyond her.

    I enjoyed this excellent interview. Thank you for introducing me to a writer I hadn’t heard of before. Her books sound fascinating.

      Thank you, Sandra. I’d love your feedback if you happen to read a book by me.

    Hi Morgen,
    The interview with Marta is a highlight. Having the chance to work with her in two LinkedIn groups,it was a joy to hear her points of view and to learn a little bit more about her. So many of her views are similar to what I think and it was nice hearing that I am not the only one who think so.
    Thanks for such an informative interview about a wonderful and fascinating person.

      Patricia, thank you so much for your comments. You know I’m a great admirer of your work and stance in life.

    Wow, thank you everyone. What a lovely surprise to wake up to so many comments. I look forward to bringing you Marta again and some of you are already booked in too. 🙂

      Morgen, you’re the one who made this possible. I’d love to come back when the time is right; that is to say, when more of my work is available.
      Thank you for being the way you are!

    I often don’t care for interviews. This one is certainly an exception. It was a learned conversation on writing between two writers with a lot worthwhile to say. Thanks for the excellent work.

      Thank you, Una. Morgen is the most generous interviewer I’ve ever met, and I’ve met quite a few.

    I had Marta as my English teacher some years ago and I will always treasure our talks about literature, movies and life.
    I enjoyed a lot getting to know a bit more of the “behind the scenes” of her writing process. Great interview!

    • Marta Merajver Kurlat

      June 28, 2012 at 5:18 pm

      Federico, it was my pleasure to work with you. Thank you for staying close!

    Great interview, both of you (especially you, Marta, who walked me through English and `English´ which are my favourite way of viewing life). 😉

  16. Marta Merajver Kurlat

    June 28, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    Damián, our bond began through English and “English” and will never be broken. I’d like to point out that you are one of my favorite poets.

    • Damian Dorfman

      June 29, 2012 at 2:32 pm

      I Couldn´t agree more (I mean our bond. As for Poetry… you´re so kind).

    “Los gloriosos sesenta y después” is one of my favourite novels. My guess is that Marta´s multiple talents and interests are partly responsible for the unique depth of the characters and the social fabric constructed in her writings.
    I loved this interview. Thank you…

    Thank you so much, Martin. It’s readers like you that encourage me to write fiction!

    Warm thanks and congratulations to you, dearest Marta, my lifelong friend whose sensitive-sensible honest writing has always delighted me and is now fortunately delighting so many others! My thanks to you, Morgen, for bringing her still closer to my heart and letting her show her many pure talents to so many nice people. I learn from you both and from all the others as well!

    What a great interview! I really enjoyed reading it and getting to know more about her creative process and other aspect of her professional life, besides of all the literature and history she teaches me.
    I cherish her both as a teacher and as a person.

    A great interview Morgen. I’ve heard and read other interviews with Marta, and am always riveted to her words, and the road she’s taken to be where she is today.I read her fabulous book Just Toss The Ashes, and am looking forward to reading the rest of her books. How to Live with Men and Survive? Sounds interesting to me.
