C'è questo bel personaggio, che è un giornalista, che ritiene più onesto dare la propria personale “visione del mondo”, assumendosi la responsabilità di quel che scrive, piuttosto che restituire una “falsa oggettività”.

Mi piace come sta ad ascoltare la stessa storia dell'argentino emigrato in Spagna e trovato morto - Alejandro Bevilacqua – dai racconti, diversissimi fra loro, di varie persone che hanno conosciuto il portegno.

Finché, quando ha raccolto più informazioni possibile, dando prova di rarissima virtù, consapevole dei propri limiti, fa un passo indietro e “contemporaneamente, nel momento stesso in cui mi rassegno a non scriverlo, sento che il mio personaggio prende vita, sento che è Bevilacqua ad affermarsi.”… (altro)
