My Lady Nicotine- J.M. Barrie
My lady Nicotine was published in 1895, nine years before the appearance on the stage in London of the timeless Peter Pan. A hilarious series of anecdotes that Barrie rattles off in these pages, almost with a motto: how to free themselves from the smoke, stop thinking about it. Suspended between dream and re-enactment scenes, a nicotine life is a succession of alternating portraits of old comrades of smoke to their tics, obsessions and rituals, all played under the banner of irony, authentic protagonist of these pages. Finished stories, and riassaporati the old memories, the author's protagonist retreats not about not smoking one step.
