Q & A …

… Slight Exaggeration: An Interview with Adam Zagajewski - Los Angeles Review of Books. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… being an author yourself, you must know how big a role chance is playing while you compose the book. Chance and intuition; my ideal for such a book is somewhere midway between a closely knit structure and a chaotic ensemble of notes, observations, motifs. Some parts of the book were written orderly — I mean their order corresponds to the order or writing, but many were juxtaposed later. My idea is usually not to bring similar motifs together but to disperse them.
