You’re organizing a literary dinner party. Which three writers, dead or alive, do you invite?
None. I would never do it. My idea of a great literary dinner party is Fran, eating alone, reading a book. That’s my idea of a literary dinner party. When I eat alone, I spend a lot of time, before I sit down to my meager meal, choosing what to read. And I’m a lot better choosing a book than preparing a meal. And I never eat anything without reading. Ever. If I’m eating an apple, I have to get a book.
[Dall'intervista a Fran Lebowitz apparsa sul NY Times]
Che magnifica idea. Un literary dinner party da sola. Scegliere il libro mentre si prepara la cena, poi sedersi a tavola, da sola, mangiare e leggere. Adoro.
PS Nella stessa intervista, sensazionale la risposta alla domanda "Se potessi costringere il Presidente (Trump) a leggere un libro, quale sceglieresti?"
"It would depend on who’s reading it to him."
