When I see Patrick Rothfuss (Madison, 1973) for the first time I can’t help feeling for a second like the Chronicler, avid to know the story of this writer that has seduced with his prose several generations all over the world. The fact that we meet in the Hotel Palacio de Ferrera of Avilés instead of the Waystone Inn or that we don’t have three days to talk about his literary universe but less than an hour doesn’t really matter since talking with Patrick Rothfuss it is so interesting itself that it is not hard to forget everything and let yourself flow with his witty answers that are, in a way, like little stories themselves.
“It’s been a weird couple of years”, says Rothfuss when I congratulate him for the success of his work, The Kingkiller Chronicle trilogy, of which he has already published the first two volumes: The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. They’ve definitely had to be crazy as he has not only been writing the third and last book of the series, but also found time to prepare for the recording of his first audiobook, collect funds for social causes, he has two kids, he has given the green light to turn his books into a television show and has published no less than two more books: The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle and The Slow Regard of Silent Things, a spin-off centered around Auri’s character.
Adria’s News interviews Patrick Rothfuss, who is undoubtedly one of the greatest fantasy writers of today, at the Celsius 232 Festival in order to ask about how Kvothe’s character was born, to know if Rothfuss was more like Hemme or Elodin during his university professor years and to see what he has planned to write once he finishes The Kingkiller Chronicle. However, Rothfuss tells me that for a while he had the habit of telling one lie in every interview just because he was getting really bored. We hope this is not the case.
