For the month of October, the proposal is to read An ordinary day in New York. This is a collection of short articles to give a more authentic taste of New York from the 70s to now. Without hairs on the tongue, in a satirical, witty and, allegedly superficial, Franz Lebowitz talks about what is on her mind with absolute freedom. It deals with the New York of the Jews, the New York of the gays, the New York of endless parties, the New York of tiny and expensive Manhattan apartments and the New York of intellectuals to make people laugh. In short, New York not only stars and contextualizes each of these stories, but also gives them soul. On Netflix we can find Pretend It's a City, directed by Martin Scorsese where he talks to Lebowitz about all these issues.
