“Independence Day” by artist Mira D’Souza. (2020)

ESCRIBIR SOBRE ALGO es intimar con ello, precisando no únicamente los aspectos intelectuales del objeto sino también, y sobre todo, los emocionales. Es pasar un momento intenso, como se dice, más espeso que la vida, con el asunto que se trata.” / “TO WRITE ABOUT SOMETHING is to be intimate with it, focusing not only on the intellectual aspects of the object but also, and above all, on the emotional ones. To write is to undergo an intense moment, as it is said, denser than life, with the affair at hand.”

—Juan José Saer, El concepto de la ficción

“HUMAN SIMILARITY is the guiding principle of writing.”

–Ha Jin, The Migrant Writer

La fantasía es una de las mejores medicinas cuando no se tiene nada“./ “Fantasy is one of the best medicines there is when one has nothing.”

–Ana María Fuster Lavin, MARIPOSAS NEGRAS
