    Pensare intensamente al futuroIl fascino di questa raccolta di racconti legato alla grande eleganza della scrittura e alla trasparenza con la quale immagini e pensieri transitano da Brodkey al lettore sono cos vividi che sembrano non passare dalla carta I racconti sono popolati di adolescenti o giovani studenti universitari, accomunati da Saint Louis e dagli studi universitari a Harvard Ci si aspetta di trovare un legame fra le storie, ma indiretto il pensare intensamente al futuro, s Pensare intensamente al futuroIl fascino di questa ...
