Bioy was way better and he lacked that (excuse my word) pretentiousness that Julio was so fond of.
No, all worthwhile writers are slightly reactionary but not actively political.
Commie writers = 95% shit insertions of Marxist theory into verse or prose
Liberal writers = highly decent novelists, OK poets - at best.
Slightly reactionary = Shakespeare, Dante, Tolstoy, Homer, Proust, Joyce
