“When I write, I repeat that which I’ve already lived. And for those two lives, only one lexicon will not suffice. In other words, I would like to be a crocodile living in the São Francisco. I would like to be a crocodile because I love great rivers, because they’re profound like the souls of men. Their surfaces are vivacious and clear, but their depths are tranquil and dark like the suffering of men.” (Trans. by FM)
