Car Crash While HitchHicking



Έχω αποφασίσει να περάσω από όλα τα essays (36 στο σύνολο) που έχει γράψει ο Chuck Palahniuk για τη συγγραφή. Στο πρώτο essay μιλάει για "Establishing you authority". Υπάρχουν δυο τρόποι λέει. Ή θα το κάνεις με το μυαλό ή με την καρδιά. Δεν θα μιλήσω πιο αναλυτικά για αυτούς τους δυο τρόπους, απλώς θα μιλήσω για ένα διήγημα που διάβασα. Αυτό το αναφέρει ο συγγραφέας ως παράδειγμα για τον τρόπο της καρδιάς. Αυτό το διήγημα πιστεύω πρέπει να διαβαστεί από όλους. Έχει τρομερές ατάκες και πολύ καλό ρυθμό.


Ατάκες όπως:

"The travelling salesman had fed me pills that made the linings of my veins feel scraped out. My jaw ached. I knew every raindrop by its name."


“He wouldn’t be taking many more [breaths], and therefore I looked down with great pity of a person’s life on earth. I don’t mean that we end up dead, that’s not the pity. I mean he couldn’t tell me whether he was dreaming, and I couldn’t tell him what was real.”


“Down the hall came the wife. She was glorious, burning. She didn't know yet that her husband was dead. We knew. That's what gave her such power over us. The doctor took her into a room with a desk at the end of the hall, and from under the closed door a slab of brilliance radiated as if, by some stupendous process, diamonds were being incinerated in there. What a pair of lungs! She shrieked as I imagined an eagle would shriek. It felt wonderful to be alive to hear it! I've gone looking for that feeling everywhere.”


Εδώ μπορείτε να το ακούσετε από έναν ηθοποιό. Πρώτη φορά ακούω τόσο καλή αφήγηση:
