Steve Tesich (b. 1942) – Serbian / American screenwriter, novelist – Breaking Away (film – 1979)

Read the Wikipedia biography and the Internet Movie Database bio for Steve Tesich

Read an interview with Steve Tesich

“This new era is a time of post-truth and post-art. Truth and art don’t exist anymore because man has been diminished. The artist today is a clown, an entertainer. I fight against this image, and I would rather die than become the same. Art is the only religion for me, because at least while I write I can believe in a truth. This is a hard time. It is when neither Tolstoy nor Dostoevsky are read. All the conditions exist, except the most important ones, for man to become a human being. However, man has been turned into something else.”
