"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."

Memories of Vienna consist mostly of food and drink. Here are examples of both:

the Mozart Torte

A "Mozart Torte" in honour of the composer's 250th birthday year. Similar to the marzipan torte I enjoyed in Bratislava, only with chocolate discs imprinted with Mozart's image.
All together now:

"If I
Could save pear
In a bot-tle..."

this is what it would look like.

I wonder how they do they do that. Impressive.
