Eric Motan has been changed by living in New York: ‘The ice has thawed’

“It fizzled out, I learned to show more empathy. A journalist has to put himself in other people’s shoes, but I was quick to judge. Like: How strange, what a hassle. And this Dutch: just act,” says Eric, who wrote a book about his life. in D.C. “I really like the caution with which New Yorkers treat each other when you talk about sexual expression and race and things like that.”

In New York, the dream city of the book, which will be published on Tuesday, Eric is also open about personal matters such as his love life. “I write personal things about my relationships, including one-night stands. I think it’s part of New York. People want to know, too,” he says. “It was never meant to talk about my sexuality or go into detail, but to say something about New York. This is a city full of ambitious young men who may not be looking much for relationships, but are fun who want connection, I’ll just say. What’s really like here, that too It’s about people. I’m not just going to tell stories about the Empire State Building.”

Whether Eric also wants to grow up in New York, he does not know yet. “I think Holland is a great country, and I always have a lot of fun there,” he says. “But right now I really feel like an American, a New Yorker.”
