Németh, Gábor

“But I thought that writing was not a sufficient condition for Major Writerhood at all, writing did not make a writer, writing was more of an unpleasant side-effect which even the best couldn’t avoid sometimes, when there were no excuses, we would have to write something, so there was a story but it was really just fooling around.” (Németh Gábor)
