"Nietzsche said the writing of history is to introduce structure and coherence to elements that are chaotic. We are near to that kind of literature when we speak of reportage. It is not invention, it has a respect for reality, it has to discover, it has to add something, and understand. And it has to have a good language."Jorge Edwards (jury member 2003)
