WRITERS ON WRITING #107: Felicia Mihali

There are so many writers, so many books that influenced me that I am afraid to start listing them.  I am sure I will leave out many of them, but let’s try.  I am fond of those unfinished books like Bouvard et Pécuchet (Flaubert), Dead Souls (Gogol), The Man Without Qualities (Robert Musil).  They are the closest to what I consider to be perfect books.  Luckily for us, the authors died before completing them, otherwise many of us should be ashamed of calling ourselves writers.  We can still hope to do something worthwhile one day.  What I like is when a book deals with more than a simple, soap-opera-like story, books made up of layers of magic, history, wisdom, mythology.
