TALK

Es nelasu daudz grāmatas (tiesa, man ir grāmata gultai, grāmata vannai, grāmata darbam), tādēļ visas, ko lasu, šķiet īpašas. Arī šī. Priekšvārdā raksturota kā ‘literary experiment’ un ‘”reality” novel’. Grāmata par trīs draugiem – divām heteroseksuālām sievietēm un viņu homoseksuālo draugu, kuri 1965.gadā pavada kopā vasaru East Hemptonā. Visas viņu sarunas tiek reāli ierakstītas diktofonā, lai pēc tam rastos TALK.FullSizeRender (1)

Priekšvārda autors arī min, ka šis ir kā iedīglis mūsdienu TV šoviem sākot no Friends, līdz par Girls. Izlasīju – piekrītu pilnībā. Arī tam, ka cilvēki, kad tas skar attiecības un ar to saistītās peripētijas, ar gadiem nemainās – 65tais vai 2016tais. Patika tik ļoti, ka bija lapas, kurām atlocīju stūrus, lai jums tagad nocitētu:

87.lpp.

EMILY: … You know what elegance is?

VINCENT: What?

EMILY: It’s a certain great sensual respect for the essence of things.

89.lpp.

EMILY: …Is Andy Warhol elegant?

VINCENT: No, but he’s got style. He’s so fake that it becomes real. I would say that in nature the sky is elegant, but the ocean isn’t. However the ocean is much more exciting than the sky.

190.lpp.

VINCENT: … I love you because you’re so sober when you’re drunk.

EMILY: … Listen, if you have some honey, you should take a couple of spoonfuls when you get home.

VINCENT: Really?

EMILY: It sobers you up, it restores Vitamin B to the system, which is what the alcohol consumes in digestion.

(PS. To triku ar medu pati jau sen intuitīvi gadiem izmantoju.)

203.lpp.

EMILY: Too many pairs of the same tassel loafers, too many La Costa Shirts.

MARSHA: What’s that?

EMILY: Those tennis shirts with the alligators on them. …

MARCHA: Armand. He shouldn’t wear white socks with his tassel loafers.

EMILY: He shouldn’t smoke pot all day and sleep until five in the afternoon. You know I’d really like to talk about love for a second, Marshie, because I’ve said a lot of very twenty-nine-year-old drunken things this summer. But I can say right now that I don’t want any more married men and I don’t want any weak men and I don’t want any men that I’ve ever known before. I think I’m just about ready to find someone who’s healthy enough to take the chance of getting married to me.

MARSHA: Amen.

Man šī bija vannas grāmata, bet pludmalē arī varētu ļoti labi aiziet.
