“¿De dónde provienen las palabras, que mi mano conoce y yo ignoro?”
Rodrigo Rey Rosa

“Necesitaba de la intriga tanto como de los alimentos.”
Rodrigo Rey Rosa, El material humano

“Ahmed, who regarded himself as an expert on the works and handwriting of Borges, had accepted the book because he was confident that sooner or later he'd find a buyer: a learned fool or a swindler, in either case, a snob. Maybe he would sell it for a fortune one day. Maybe not. And maybe one day Severina will tear out some of her hair and scatter it over my body.”
