Luciana Littizzetto all'Italian Bookshop!
4th June 2013 - The Italian Bookshop - 7.00pm
in conversazione con
ci parlerà del suo libro
Non ci resta che ridere, care Madame Sbatterflay. Anche se lo spread sale e il Walter scende, e a noi rimane solo il bandolero stanco, il nostro bell'addormentato nei boxer. Anche se in tempi di vacche magre (beate loro!), i politici fanno a gara a chi la combina più grossa, se Emi(nens) non paga l'Imu, il Berlu alza i tacchi, e l'uomo del Monti dice no. Se siamo passati dall'onorevole Bocchino all'onorevole Passera. Se certa gente non sa più cosa inventarsi: lo scalda-walter e il pisciavelox, i preservativi firmati e il certificato di garanzia per la Jolanda. Se Belén va con Belìn, Carla è sempre più snob e George Clooney sempre più tronco di pino."
Luciana Littizzetto è una figura di culto della comicità italiana. Ha lavorato in radio, cinema e televisione. Attualmente è ospite fissa a 'Che tempo che fa' programma di Rai 3 condotto da Fabio Fazio. Ha pubblicato tra gli altri La Jolanda Furiosa e i Dolori del giovane Walter.
