Requiem para um saco de papel

Requiem for a Paper Bag: Celebrities and Civilians Tell Stories of the Best Lost, Tossed, and Found Items from Around the WorldRequiem for a Paper Bag: Celebrities and Civilians Tell Stories of the Best Lost, Tossed, and Found Items from Around the World by Davy Rothbart
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The idea is so interesting... people write about things they find, at any given time, be them scraps of paper, objects or whatnots.
the book had been in my wishlist for months, because I thad thought it would be too good - I almost had it shipped, never mind the gadzillion charged in taxes for Brazil.
Then it just fell flat. There are a couple of nice stories - one about a wallet, one about a porn mag, for instance - but all in all, I'm deleting it from my kindle archives in three minutes.

View all my reviews Basicamente, o livro é uma coleção de histórias contadas por famosos (semi) sobre coisas que encontraram, sejam objetosm papéis, cartas, etc. Não é muito legal? uma antropologia literária, eu achei. Meses ficou na wishlist da Amazon, achei que seria muuuito bom. Desapontamento gigante. As histórias são sem gracinha, de vinte eu doze horas depois me lembro de duas, sem profundidade nem conexão. humpf.
