The author of Poemas de Amor, Los Verdes Campos del Eden, El Manuscrito Carmesi, La Regla de Tres, and numerous other books also talks about how he first started writing and the process of creating literature, the societal risks of politicizing religion, the upside of getting older, and the decadence and stagnation that can come from too much prosperity at the national level.
