When I was in high school, I was dreaming of becoming a writer. I still write occasionally, both poetry and prose. I may publish something, one day.
I still try to read actively, though not so much as I’d like to.
Some of my favorite writers are:
My high-school graduation thesis was on him and his work. Differently from most of the people, I especially like his later works (For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea).
I find his books so relaxing. I also like some of the ideas he adopted later in his life.
How well he understood human mind… How smartly he was asking big questions through stories of small people…
If I have a favorite book, then it’s The Master and Margarita.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Mario Vargas Llosa
Brilliant writing style, put at elaborating big questions.
Wonderful describer of the Latin American soul.
Great philosopher, but also a great writer.
“A novel is a philosophy put into images.”
