in my case it has only been painful and nasty
Ainda sobre as memórias de Djuna Barnes, um trecho do livro, exemplo do humor espirituoso da escritora (e aproveitando que toquei em assuntos gasosos ali em baixo).
escreve Hank O´Neal sobre um encontro com Barnes:"She once asked me to buy a book, any current book I might buy for myself, bring it by, and then read her a few pages. I chose a new Beckett book, ´Company´. The next day I called on Barnes and told her I had a new book by her old friend, Samuel Beckett. She was interested in what he might be writing and asked if I´d read some to her. I began, and after about two paragraphs she stopped me and said, ´Mr. O´Neal, everybody farts. Most people can stand the smell of their own farts but do not enjoy the farts of others. This is Sam Beckett farting.´ I put the book back in bag and we both laughed."
