The Weekend | Reading Suggestions

Δεν ξέρω αν σας έλειψαν, αλλά αποφάσισα να επιστρέψω με τις αναγνωστικές προτάσεις του Σαββατοκύριακου. Σε αυτό το post έχω να σας κάνω τρεις προτάσεις: (α) ένα όμορφο άρθρο στο περιοδικό The New Yorker που θα αγγίξει τις χορδές των βιβλιόφιλων, (β) ένα αφιέρωμα στις ταινίες της Agnès Varda και στους λόγους για τους οποίους θεωρείται σημαντική σκηνοθέτης, και (γ) ένα άρθρο της Dolly Alderton για το μόνιμο αίσθημα του «I’m in trouble», που πολλοί από εμάς βιώνουμε. Καλή αναγνωστική απόλαυση!

  My Father’s Stack of Books by Kathryn Schulz @ The New Yorker

And yet, as my father knew, a perfect shelving system is also inherently an imperfect one. […] The difficulty is that anything that is perfectly ordered is always threatening to become imperfect and disorderly—especially books in a household of readers. You are forever acquiring new ones and going back to revisit the old, spotting some novel you’ve always intended to read and pulling it from its designated location, discovering never-categorized books in the office or the back seat or under the bed.

 

  The Restless Life and Oeuvre of Agnès Varda by David Hudson @ criterion.com

Martin Scorsese puts it this way: “Every single one of her remarkable handmade pictures, so beautifully balanced between documentary and fiction, is like no one else’s—every image, every cut.”

“Why did we react like that?” I asked. “Did you think we were in trouble?”

“Yeah,” Lauren replied. “But I always think I’m in trouble. I’ve felt like I’m in trouble every day since I left school.”
