Eka Kurniawan: “I am always open to possibilities.”

Indian Express: ​Both Beauty is a Wound and Man Tiger have many ghosts in them. Do you believe in ghosts?

Eka Kurniawan: I am always open to possibilities. I have never met ghosts and I can’t prove their existence or non-existence. But in this world, there are a lot of things we don’t know and don’t understand. The most important thing about ghosts for me is that as long as people talk about them, they are relevant to our lives. Maybe ghosts are a kind of mirror for our fears, or maybe, our hopes?
