Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones.
A small tribute to GGM … Amazing author and a wise man. My late aunt turned me onto his writing in my teens with Hundred Years — she waxed eloquent about his passion and how his writing pushed you into thinking differently. I also melted into Love in the Time of Cholera (the romantic and sentimental side of me).This quote resonated, and then got me thinking “how can I go find those authors who don’t come to me through bestseller lists and prizes?”
