My favourite film scene is… The final scene from The Third man by Carol Reed.

One day I would like to go to… St. Petersburg in the year 1938.

My bag is not complete without… Cigarettes.

The worst thing I ever bought is… Betting on the horse “Rock roll boy” in a race. He did not even start.

The best thing I ever tasted is… Belgian waffles.

I was happiest when… I played football in the community center team. I was twelve at the time and scored five goals against our mortal enemies.

What I regret most regret is… All the things I did not tell to the people I loved and who passed away.

I’m not superstitious, but… I am superstitious.

My most irritating feature is… My obsession with memories.

I always lie about… The novels I write.

I can’t control myself when … I’m really scared.

I would dump my lover for… A party thrown by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda.
