Pai bine, unde e Dostoievski (mai multe), unde e Durell, unde e Cortazar? Putea sa fie mai interesanta lista asta. Concluzia: am mai multe carti de citit decat citite propriu-zis. Si mai multe de care nu am auzit. Shame on me.

Ca veni vorba. A citit cineva pe Italo Calvino?

  1. nu de autori romani, doar o lista de carti cu titluri in romana. Ca nu ma gandesc acum la un top 100 cu Vintila Corbul si Pavel Corut langa Blaga sau Blandiana.

  2. Am eu Calvino – “Daca intr-o noapte un calator”. E faina, putin cam plictisitoare pe la mijloc, dar foarte misto la sfarsit. Citeste pe wikipedia daca vrei sa stii despre ce e vorba. Daca nu, o sa fie o surpriza. Anunta-ma cand o vrei. Era promisa lui Cristi, dar lui o sa ii fac o oferta pe care n-o s-o poata refuza.😀 Pe undeva prin lista asta e si Paul Auster?

    PS: Da, mai dau si eu pe bloguri ocazional😀

  3. mi-e rusine sa recunosc😛 dar eu am citit iubiri dificile pt ca m-a fascinat coperta:editia de la polirom are amantii de renne magritte…anyway niste povestiri interesante despre lipsa de comunicare in cuplu…
