LETTERS OF NOTE


En poco tiempo estamos perdiendo costumbres maraBillosas, como escribir cartas. Todavía recuerdo mi impaciencia esperando al cartero a pié de buzón, intentando reconocer su letra diminuta en uno de aquellos sobres… mientras los latidos de mi corazón martilleaban mi impaciencia. 

LETTERS OF NOTE recopila cartas memorables de grandes ilustres, desde Eisenhower a Brando pasando por Iggy Pop o Albert Einstein.

Dear Mr Brando

I wrote a book called THE GODFATHER which has had some success and I think you're the only actor who can play the part Godfather with that quiet force and irony (the book is an ironical comment on American society) the part requires. I hope you’ll read the book and like it well enough to use whatever power you can to get the role.

I'm writing Paramount to the same effect for whatever good that will do.

I know this was presumptuous of me but the least I can do for the book is try. I really think you'd be tremendous. Needless to say I've been an admirer of your art.

Mario Puzo

A mutual friend, Jeff Brown, gave me your address

Ciento veinticinco de ellas ahora forman parte del libro Cartas memorables(Salamandra).

  1. No me vas a creer pero esta tarde recibí un pequeño paquete de mi mejor amiga y de esto estuve hablando con P., que echaba de menos esa época cuando nos mandábamos cartas contando pequeños detalles de la vida cotidiana, pensamientos y otras mil historias..
