Since I was seventeen I thought I might be a star. I'd think about all my heroes, Charlie Parker, Jimi Hendrix... I had a romantic feeling about how these people became famous.
Indeed, wretched the man whose fame makes his misfortunes famous.
Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.
Héroes y mártires del capitalismo, pues. ¡Flor de pareja!
Mario Vargas Llosa
