Salinger non aveva previsto tutte le opzioni

Qual'è la frase di Salinger che tutti si ricordano, e quando se la ricordano la usano come metro di paragone per tutti i libri che leggeranno da allora in poi?

Questa:
"I libri che mi piacciono di più sono quelli che almeno ogni tanto sono un po' da ridere. [...] Quelli che mi lasciano proprio senza fiato sono i libri che quando li hai finiti di leggere e tutto quel che segue vorresti che l'autore fosse un tuo amico per la pelle e poterlo chiamare al te

A very dark and at times brilliant satire on the human condition as viewed through the eyes and experiences of Christopher Columbus, who in one form or another comes back to our present to set the record straight. We get a street-eye view of the great age of exploration and the Spanish Inquisition filtered through Columbus' modern and very anachronistic sensibilities.

Magnificent. A true epic, it's not the longest book page wise but the size of the experience of the characters is massive. It's funny, sad, grand, intimate and most of all very well researched. I actually feel as if I've gone on a journey across the Ocean Sea myself.
