SED NON SATIATUS

"Wilde, again, as always, and more than ever"
(my comment to a photo)

“Nabokov’s works made me follow 
his literary taste almost entirely. 
Marguerite Yourcenar's brilliant
Memoirs of Hadrian changed my spiritual
life. Evelyn Waugh 
is the best literary stylist for me.
Chekhov is my first literary love.
Oscar Wilde is my current icon.”
(Lara Biyuts)
