One of my favorite authors - "The Death of Artemio Cruz" is one of my favorite novels, too. I have his new novel, "Destiny and Desire," in my to-read pile.

This quote may be true for him, but for me "Writing is the companion of silence. It is only in silence I can hear the quiet voice from within, that is my own."

Thank you so much, otherwise I would not have known what I thought.
