“Farther Away”

July 26, 2013

Livro de ensaios/artigos jornalísticos/discursos do meu querido mais do que amado Jonathan Franzen. Amo quando ele escreve ficção, sigo, inclusive, as dicas dele, quando ele comenta outros livros, mas também adoro quando ele escreve sobre outras coisas, quando relata a situação dos pássaros no Chipre, quando faz um discurso de final de curso numa universidade americana. Um pequeno trecho, pra dar água na boca:
“When you stay in your room and rage or sneer or shrug your shoulders, as I did for many years, the world ans its problems are impossibly daunting. But when you go out and put yourself in real relation to real people, or even just real animals, there’s a very real danger that you might end up loving some of them. And who knows what might happen to you then?”

Se pudesse dava dez corações a ele. 🙂

Lido em inglês.
