OK, aquí vamos otra vez.
Philip Roth, en su «American Pastoral» detona alrededor de la página 35 el asunto de las otredades. «And yet what are we to do about this terribly significant business of other people… ? Is everyone to go off and lock the door and sit secluded like lonely writers do, in a soundproof cell, summoning people out of words and then proposing that these word people are closer to the real thing than the real people that we mangle with our ignorance every day? The fact remains that getting people right is not what living is all about anyway. It’s getting them wrong that is living, getting them wrong and wrong and wrong and then, on careful reconsideration, getting them wrong again.»
