If I had to choose a book as my favourite it would be a tough call. Each stage of our life is marked by one or more books which we think will be the definitive ones, but no, there is always another one, says Ms María Muñiz de Urquiza, Member of the European Parliament.
As Borges stated in The Book of Sand or in the image of the circular library as a summary of Paradise, you always discover a new one that returns the game to the starting square, renewing the eagerness to know, to enjoy the aesthetics of literature itself, to think about what others felt and were able to express and we identify substantially with them, and then we know that we are not alone. Borges, Cortázar, Javier Marías, John Updike, Amy Tan, Julian Barnes, Anne Tyler, Bret Easton Ellis, and now Murakami, added Ms Muñiz de Urquiza.
