“When the muses arrive: how the great masters of literature work” Raúl Cremades and Ángel Esteban

“Under what circumstances did the first idea for his Essay on blindness come to Saramago's mind? Why does García Márquez need a yellow flower on his table in order to work? Why does Isabel Allende always start her novels on the same date, January 8? When the muses arrive offers us not only the answers to all these questions and many more, but also the keys to understanding the relationship between passion and the craft of writers, between inspiration and work, between the most sublime moments and the most trivial of literary creation.
