Più di una biografia
Un piccolo classico della letteratura contemporanea, un romanzo di vita che affascina, diverte e commuove dalla prima all'ultima riga.

I tell reporters that I'm struggling with the end more than I expected. I tell them that the best way I can explain is this: Many of you, I'm sure, don't like your jobs. But imagine if someone told you right now that your story about me would be your ...Continua

Maybe they're confused because I don't tell them the full story, don't explain my full motivation. I can't, since I'm only slowly becoming aware of it myself. I play and keep playing because I choose to play. Even if it's not your ideal life, ...Continua

She listens without interrupting. I'd rather she interrupted. I want answers. The more I talk, the more acutely aware I become of talking to myself. As always. This isn't the way to save a marriage. Marriages don't get saved or solved by one person t ...Continua
