I'm reading Crónica del alba, Ramón J. Sender (Spain, 1901 - U.S. 1982). He is a rare Spanish writer or perhaps a strange writer? César Aira talked about it in an interview:
"I´m one of the few, strangers writers who actualy likes to write. There are many writers who want to be writers (...) But actually the don´t like the work of writting. Every ten years they exert theysemlves in order to maintain their Writer`s Licence by making the sacrifice of writting a book. That´s not the case with me. I write every day because I take pleasure in it. And even though I write very little".
If you take a book of Ramón J. Sender or Cesar Aira you realize the joy of their work. Ramon J. Sender as the Spanish writers Vicente Blasco Ibáñez or Alberto Vazquez Figueroa have a tumultuous ability to create a cosmos of life.
"Everyone says that I write a lot but it's nothing compared to I´ve seen and experienced; and besides, no one has ever seen me write because I get up early and write every day two or three hours. That's enough for me". R.J.Sender.
