Philip Roth
“Ed è vero, no? – incredibile ma vero – che c’è gente che prova nella vita la disinvoltura, la fiducia in sé, la semplice ed essenziale sintonia con gli avvenimenti che io ero solito provare come esterno centro dei Seabees? Perché, vede, non si trattava di essere il miglior esterno centro, bensì solo di sapere con precisione, fino al più piccolo particolare, come dovesse comportarsi un esterno centro. E c’è gente simile che cammina per le strade degli USA? Le chiedo: perché non posso essere uno di loro? Perché non posso esistere adesso come esistevo per i Seabees là all’esterno centro?”
Philip Roth, Portnoy's Complaint

Michel Houellebecq
“La mia carriera non era stata un fallimento, commercialmente perlomeno: se si aggredisce il mondo con una violenza sufficiente, allora finisce per sganciarli, i suoi sporchi soldi; ma non vi ridà mai e poi mai la gioia.”
Michel Houellebecq, The Possibility of an Island

David Foster Wallace
“PS: Allston rules!”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

David Foster Wallace
“ast year’s Best-Sex-Scene-in-a-film winner Vince Voyeur’s real name turns out to be John LaForme. Rhetorical Q.: How, if one’s real name was John LaForme, could that person possibly feel the need for a nom de guerre?”
David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays

David Foster Wallace
“A crude way to put the whole thing is that our presence culture is, both develeopmentally and historically, adolescent. And since adolescence is acknowledged to be the single most stressful and frightening period of human development – the stage when adulthood we claim to crave begins to present itself as a real and narrowing system of responsibilities and limitation (taxes, death) and when we yearn inside for a return to the same childish oblivion we pretend to scorn – it’s not difficult to see why we as a culture are so susceptible to art and entertainment whose primary function is escape, i. e. fantasy, adrenaline, spectacle, romance, etc.”
David Foster Wallace, Consider the Lobster and Other Essays

Michele Orti Manara sarò una tomba :D


Sabrina Io qua faccio un po' finta di non essere italiana, ma qualche contatto compatriota non si disdegna mai ^__^
Anche se abbiamo un solo libro in comune :D


Michele Orti Manara Ciao, dunque:
per la copertina appena riesco ci do un occhio.
La data di fine lettura dovresti poterla mettere cliccando su "edit review" una volta che entri nella scheda libro.
Il re pallido per ora mi sembra all'altezza dei romanzi e dei racconti "completi"... Solito bagaglio di psicosi e scrittura ossessiva. Vediamo come prosegue.
Ciao
