The crack and the light

“We live never knowing when something will last…” Reading is good. Having the chance to meet and chat with some authors does a lot of good. We were lucky to have had the opportunity to read and converse with Gemma Calabresi Milite. Getting in touch with the hand and heart that wrote the light words on which the story of memories rests was an unexpected gift. The book has as its main theme that of...

The judge of Cuvio

“The lady was waiting for him at the door and pulling him in like a sip of water.” The story of Augusto Vanghetta, before and after rising to the public office of judge, is that of a miserable person who, due to a fortuitous series of events, and very few personal merits, manages to have social success. Annihilated by a continuous carnal desire to have as many women as possible, he even manages to organize...

In the moment

“You fall before you fall.” Following a fall from a horse, just outside the riding school he manages with his partner, Luca discovers that he is a man on the verge of an existential crisis. The few certainties on which he had built the second part of his life, in the countryside of central Italy, crumble. The physical pain of falling opens the doors to the latent pain of the soul. After a short period...

Luca’s secret

“That old priest, not only preaches the faith of God to women and children, as his profession requires, but he himself believes in it.” Warning for the reader: this review is written by an entire editorial staff totally enchanted by Ignazio Silone’s prose. Underrated, forgotten, left to tan on second-hand stalls, for us Silone’s books are works of art to have at home without arguing. The protagonist of the story, Luca Sabatini, returns to his...

Disturbo della pubblica quiete

Written by Dimitri A. Piccolillo (Bookseller Mondadori Bookstore Barona) This review is available only in the original language. _____________________________________________________________________________ Esordio inaspettato questo di Luca Bizzarri. Da una persona famosa come lui (attore, comico, personaggio televisivo, conduttore e presidente della Fondazione Palazzo Ducale di Genova), normalmente ci si aspetta una autobiografia. “Questo è ciò che mi hanno chiesto infatti!” scherza Luca nella chiacchierata che abbiamo fatto in streaming (disponibile al seguente link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2oR99LH0wc ) Ma Luca...

Save yourself who have a dream

“Sometimes I think that the real curse of my continent is not so much poverty, but the fact that when you are poor you only think of yourself.” Guidrigildo, a word of Lombard origin formed by wer (man, in Latin vir) and geld (price, value), is the sum of money that represented the allowance to be paid to the relatives of the killed person. So here is the whole book enclosed in a single word...

It looked like beauty

“What is the precise moment when we discover that flying is the prerogative of birds and butterflies?“ It looked like beauty but it was not: it was pain, suffering, rejection of oneself and of others, admiration mixed with envy and hatred; it looked like youth and instead it was bullying, prevarication and violence; it looked like the success and glory of one’s career and instead it was escape and tears and the constant search for...

Cosplaygirl

“Going back to my parents’ house doesn’t help.” We started reading this book knowing little about the world of cosplay, and all the parallel reality that spinning around it. For the few who, like us, do not know it, cosplay is a worldwide phenomenon, for which young enthusiasts (but also not so young now) interpret characters from video games or from the manga world, creating costumes and choreography. The book tells the story of Alice,...
