I'm a literature addict with a long-standing passion for languages, movies, and behavioural and brain sciences. In the process of combining said passions, I have come to discover geniuses such as Milan Kundera, Ernesto Sábato, Oliver Sacks, Thomas Szasz, Temple Grandin, Julian Barnes, Amelie Nothomb, among many others.
On the geekier side, I have also discovered the joys of solving cryptograms and other language-related games, and can stay up all night with a 3,000 pieces, black-and-white jigsaw puzzle. Or playing online scrabble.
