Personal Quote:

I often have the impression that the book I've just finished isn't satisfied, that it rejects me because I haven't successfully completed it. Because there is no going back, I'm forced to begin a new book so I can finally complete the previous one. And so, I take certain scenes and develop them more fully. These repetitions have a hypnotic quality, like a litany.


He was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in literature. See more »
