Creative Perseverance

“…the first royalties that allowed me to live on my stories and novels were paid to me when I was in my forties, after I had published four books with the most abject earnings. Before that, my life was always agitated by a tangle of tricks, feints, and illusions intended to outwit the countless lures that tried to turn me into anything but a writer.”

-Gabriel García Márquez in Living to Tell the Tale

A terribly fascinating book, which somehow makes sense of even the strangest of his stories. Makes me curious to read the autobiographies of all my favorite writers.
