Alejandro Jodorowsky
“He who understands philosophy understands laughter. That mysterious Word at the beginning, mentioned in the Bible, is a divine guffaw.”
Alejandro Jodorowsky, Where the Bird Sings Best

Deepak Unnikrishnan
“The sultan had enormous eyebrows, fibrous like angora wool. In moments of strife, his eyebrows twitched violently. Like now!
His Excellency’s royal blood boiled. Once again another mesmerized American news anchor gushed about Dubai’s vision, hailing the imagination of the al-Maktoum family.
“Where is this vision coming from?” probed Katie Couric.
“Ignorant Yankee!” Sultan Mo-Mo’s British twang bore traces of Basil Fawlty.
The sultan wanted to retch. Dubai’s showboating gave him indigestion, but he continued helping himself to more chips and fiery salsa, downing cold Guinness, smoking excellent hash, humming the theme song of The Wonder Years.”
Deepak Unnikrishnan, Temporary People

Jimmy Santiago Baca
“I emerged from the black oil pools in the forgotten house of dreams in the wild backcountry of the heart. I am heir to the sun, child of Mother Earth and the Mayan galaxy. All the mountain cures and healing waters and winds and junipers run deep in my bloodstream.”
Jimmy Santiago Baca, The Face

Ricardo Piglia
“He wrote very well in those days, as it happens, much better than he does now. He had absolute convictions, and style is nothing more than the absolute conviction of possessing a style.”
Ricardo Piglia, Los diarios de Emilio Renzi: Años de formación

Jimmy Santiago Baca
“I am a face in a trance, evoking duende. My face imbues breath and stuns you with star-spirit. I am grove-face, story-teller face, and dawn-bringer face. A face as common as carrots and celery, called upon as a father to be cook, waiter, servant, and maid.”
Jimmy Santiago Baca, The Face
