En Diario de un escritor el gran novelista ruso privilegia su compromiso ethical con los sucesos más acuciantes de su tiempo, a través de una entreverada mezcla de géneros –autobiografía, ficción, ensayo, crónicas judiciales, necrológicas, estampas de costumbres, breves tratados sobre el carácter nacional-, de los angeles que resulta un experimento de arte essential, un triunfo de los angeles pasión por l. a. libertad humana.

Nigel Gray is the owner and chief engineer. We’re working with state-of-the-art sixteen-track one-inch recording tape. The first track that we lay down for each of the three songs is the cheesy drum box pattern, as a glorified metronome.

It was just yesterday that I got my first inkling of what music was going to do to my life. At the shawerma stand on the beach I overheard two of the big girls talking about The Nomads. ” Well, I’m not even close to being as groovy as Ian. Never will be. I’m a skinny twelve-year-old, and these girls are fifteen. They are talking about a mythical being. They’re already pouring their young imaginations into the chalice of music idolatry. I badly want to drink undeservedly from that cup. My chest is rising with the idea that the subject of their fancy is nerdy little me.
I have been “American” all my life, but this is effectively the first time that I’ve actually been here. My daddy took us off to Egypt when I was two months old.
