Personal Quote:

[on Felix Salten's novel 'Bambi'] I do not, as a rule, like the method which places human words in the mouths of dumb creatures, and it is the triumph of this book that, behind the conversation, one feels the real sensation of the creatures who speak.

Trivia:

His writing was influenced by Turgenev and by Joseph Conrad, whom he befriended. See more »
