To Write is to Have Died

“Everyone knows that to write is to have died. Only death makes a clean copy of life, and it is only death that, at such a distance, can rewrite it. This is why to be a writer means relating the world of the living from the world of the dead.”
Agustín Fernández Mallo, Nocilla Dream

[See Simon Critchley.]
