“I do not believe that I should only write about what I know but that I should write also of the other.”
Felisberto Hernández

“...atendía la vida como quien come distraído.”
Felisberto Hernández

“I was in the situation of someone who has assumed, all his life, that madness was on eway, and suddenly in its grip, discovers that it is not only different from the way he'd imagined but that the person suffering from it is someone else, and that this someone else is not interested in finding out what madness is like: he is simply immersed in it, or it has descended on him, and that's that.”
Felisberto Hernández, Piano Stories
