Jump Cut: Woody Allen e Machado de Assis

Machado de Assis: tão bom que até o Woody curte

Machado de Assis: tão bom que até o Woody curte

Acredite se quiser: Woody Allen foi convidado pelo The Guardian para falar um pouco sobre os livros que tiveram mais impacto em sua carreira de diretor e comediante. Na lista, JD Salinger, SJ Peralman e… Machado de Assis! O autor brasileiro foi citado por conta de “Memórias Póstumas de Brás Cubas” que, em inglês, tem o título de “Epitaph of a Small Winner”. Segue o comentário de Woody:

“I was shocked by how charming and amusing it was. I couldn’t believe he lived as long ago as he did. You would’ve thought he wrote it yesterday. It’s so modern and so amusing. It’s a very, very original piece of work. It rang a bell in me, in the same way that The Catcher in the Rye did. It was about subject matter that I liked and it was treated with great wit, great originality and no sentimentality.”
