Más lectores de Roth

Philip Roth y los hermano cerditos. Fuente: ant artz

Si creen que Obama es el único lector inusitado de Philip Roth se equivocan. En el "Paper Cuts" Gregory Cowles cuenta su inesperado encuentro con un guardia (guachimán en peruano) que lee a Roth, no para entender el mundo de los judíos en EEUU sino su propio mundo. Y como yo soy un fanático de Roth (al que voy a empezar a llamar Pip, como Mauricio Salvador), lo cuento aquí también con orgullo. Dice el post:
I went to a small museum with my family this week, and in one of the galleries noticed a paperback copy of “The Professor of Desire” on a chair against the wall. “Are you reading that?” I asked the guard, who’d been keeping a wary eye on my two young children. He perked right up. “Philip Roth is my favorite author,” he said. We chatted a bit about academic concerns — David Kapesh as a narrator versus Nathan Zuckerman, and the playful cross-references between various novels — and as we talked the guard seemed to reach a decision. He leaned confidingly toward me, and his next sentences came all in a rush. “I’m rereading all of his breakup novels right now,” he said. “Because I’m going through one of my own, and they just really, really help.”

Leer a Roth es un placer, que le den o no le den el Nobel no importa, es está más allá de un premio.
