Placer culposo

Anna and the French Kiss, de Stephanie Perkins


Es un libro muy de minita, muy obvio, y aun así me encantó. Entre otras cosas, porque su protagonista es una adolescente que sueña con ser crítica de cine (sí, sueña con escribir sobre películas en algún sitio popular y viajar a festivales de cine). Y entre sus directores favoritos aparecen nada menos que Wes Anderson y Sofia Coppola, En realidad es ella su opción favorita.

It’s about isolation and loneliness, but it’s also about friendship. Being exactly what the other person needs. At one point, the girl ask the man, “Does it get easier?” His first reply is “no”, and then “yes”, and then “it gets easier”. And then he tells her, “The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you thing let things upset you”.Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins.
