“Listen closely. There’s a remote possibility that you might learn something: First, I don’t give a damn if my work is commercial or not…I’m the writer. If what I write is good, then people will read it. That’s why literature exists. An author puts his heart and guts on the page. For your information, a good novel can change the world. Keep that in mind before you attempt to sit down at a typewriter. Never waste time on something you don’t believe in yourself.”
John Fante

En "Los Lanzallamas", Roberto Arlt conjuga el gran diálogo introspectivo y la profundidad psicológica propia de un Dostoievsky latinoamericana, con el arrabal y el lunfardo. En este sentido, el autor logra hacer uso de elementos tanto de la Literatur ...more

En el Camino es, antes que un diario de carretera, un manifiesto a la vida, a la felicidad y la furia del hecho de poder respirar cada mañana. La prosa de Kerouac, rápida, ligera y sobre todo sincera, hace del libro un manifiesto de toda una generaci ...more

Raymond Carver
“I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone's heart. I could hear the human noise we sat there making, not one of us moving, not even when the room went dark.”
Raymond Carver

Charles Bukowski
“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski

Charles Bukowski
“We are like roses that have never bothered to bloom when we should have bloomed and it is as if the sun has become disgusted with waiting”
Charles Bukowski

“That's the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.”
Charles Bukowski, Women
