Paulo Mendes Campos, F. Scott Fitzgerald


Nascido em Porto Alegre e filho do também escritor Érico Verissimo, Luis Fernando Verissimo é famoso por suas crônicas cheias de ironia humorística. Além de escritor, ele também é jornalista, publicitário, cartunista e tradutor. Entre suas paixões, estão a família, o time de paixão, Internacional de Porto Alegre, e o jazz sendo praticamente inseparável de seu saxofone.
Seus amigos o definem como "uma pessoa que fala escrevendo". Em público, ele é tímido e de forma alguma aparenta ser o autor de seus irreverentes textos. É considerado o escritor que mais vende livros no Brasil.
