Da ieri esiste Amazon Italia. E proprio ieri pomeriggio, in preda a una voglia matta e disperatissima di leggere qualcosa di impegnato e formativo, su consiglio di una brava maestra ho comptrato questo. Stamattina era già sulla mia scrivania. Poco fa ho aperto una pagina a caso e ho riso molto.
When I first moved to New York after college, this cute guy, a twenty-seven-year-old movie director (who’d never actually directed a movie) told me I “needed a Brazilian here.” Considering the position of his head at the time, which I’m way too polite to reveal, I thought it was très peculiar that he was proposing that a man of Latin origin should put his head in the same place. “Chad!” I said. “Why would you want a Brazilian here as well as you?” (I mean, not to be racist or anything, but one foreigner a time.)
