"I see my life and works as riding down tracks which are so close that they may (or may not) merge somewhere in the future. However when I tarry too long on these replies, I skip from one track to the other, mixing reality and the imaginary world and end up piling fiction upon fiction. Perhaps I am unaware when memory becomes imagination."

Taken from an interview with the author at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1993 and a declaration to journalist Paulo Roberto Pires, recorded by Silviano Santiago in an essay he wrote for Cadernos de Literatura Brasileira.
