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 interviewed the exiled General Juan Domingo Peron in Madrid, Spain in the 1970s. See more »
