Thoughts from late author Cabrera Infante

From kitabkhana via Maud Newton: "The author of Three Trapped Tigers died at 75. From The Paris Review:
INTERVIEWER: Surely you believe in immortality, a niche in that book called Literary History?
CABRERA INFANTE: I don't believe in immortality, either of the body or of the written word, my corpus. Remember, when we talk about those immortal writers, like Homer, we are not talking about the writers but their writing. Dead men don't write. Dead writers don't last. Homer exists as a continuous process of rewriting called reading and translation."
Apparently he "wrote the best description of a blowjob I ever read." If anybody can find that description, email me at I'll blog it, and give a prize to anyone who tops it. It's time descriptions of blowjobs caught up with sunsets.
