Personal Quote:

Nothing is true; at the same time everything is true. You see in my part of the world, documents often were falsified by governments. There is almost nothing authentic. If those in power have the right to imagine a history that is false, why then shouldn't novelists attempt with their imaginations to discover the truth.


He had homes in Buenos Aires, Argentina and in Highland Park, New Jersey. See more »
