What a sad, sad little episode, this bit of Simon's life. Well-writen and thought and interesting, in a way. But so targeted for a wealthy audience, which was was disappointing. When a posh individual gets depressed they go out and shop uncontrollably. When those "less fortunate" get into a depression they have no alternative but to carry on surviving. This was too intelectual, too far from reality and too hard to sympathise with the main character. I thought I'd keep this copy (hard cover, a Roth!) but I'm passing it on. Unfortunately this was my first by the author and it's left me wondering if all his characters and stories are part of the intellectual elite....Continua
Credo di aver un grosso problema di comunicazione con Philip Roth.
Ne "L'animale morente" almeno mi piaceva quello che voleva dirmi. anche se non riuscivo a capire bene come stesse cercando di comunicare, in questo caso proprio non ho capito niente.
Una caduta infinita che non mi pare trovi fine. E poi insomma, Roth sa scrivere l'erotismo? Dite? A me qui non pare proprio.
