That wonderful thing Hamlet says about “a fiction, a dream of passion.” My fiction is a dream of passion, born of a cry that says “I am incomplete. I want to be complete, to be enclosed. I want to add something.” So Artemio Cruz, for example, is a novel of voices. I think literature is born from a voice: you discover a voice and you want to give it a body of paper, but it is the voice that will be the reality of the novel.
