Klara and the Sun

“A fence can break down in a moment.” First book published by Ishiguro, after the victory of the nobel in 2017, and in a certain sense it is noticeable because it is outside its usual narrative bed. In this regard, we think it is a gift that the writer wanted to give to himself and to those who love his pen, whatever path he wanted to take. Klara is an android (or Artificial Friend), which...

The house in Valadier road

“Capable people, honest people can only end up like this. Either in jail, or abroad, or forced to retire to private life.” A little gem to keep among the dear objects of the Italian language. A novel without too many pretensions, if not to tell a simple story, with characters built on the quicksand of human meanness, a sincere mirror of society. Two stories written in different periods that offer a clear point of view...

Tower

“FRIDAY DI-VERSO” “God had taken back that precarious peace and filled the void of silence. It was still Judgment Day.”   It happens to hear combinations of words that, due to strange circumstances, are well suited to an object totally different from the original one. So it was for these: “scenario and substance”. There was talk of a city but they settled on the pages of Bae Myung-Hoon with very elegant grace and timing. So what...

The wonders

The books chosen by Andrea Salonia This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Anche qui: perché? Perché ho cominciato a leggerlo, perché Le meraviglie – queste, in particolare, e non altre, fatte di altre parole, di altre storie, di altre suggestioni, di altro… Questo Le meraviglie, edizioni Einaudi, di Elena Medel, poetessa e scrittrice spagnola che non conoscevo, è un romanzo corale, un romanzo di formazione, un romanzo difficile. La traduzione in italiano è...

Words are stones

“Mafia does not exist.” Pages to be framed. Take them one by one and wallpaper the walls of Italian schools, so as to remain fixed in one way or another in the minds of the students, even the most distracted. If you have already read Carlo Levi, here we are faced with something completely different, such as the structure and history of the story, the prose and the story and the power of the words...

Aion. Riaffiorare dall’oblio

The books chosen by Federica Dagonese This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Un libro difficile da incasellare in un solo genere letterario, tanto è vario, tanto la storia sfiora i vari aspetti e le varie emozioni dell’essere umano, che difficilmente possiamo circoscriverlo ad una specifica area. Perciò se stai cercando un libro libero da vincoli e pronto a trasportarti in mondi con regole che non conosci, stai prendendo in considerazione il...

White is the color of the damage

The books chosen by Andrea Salonia This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Se sei un medico, dovresti leggerlo. Se sei un paziente, dovresti leggerlo. Se sei un individuo senziente, dovresti leggerlo. Questa la prima e più verace impressione che traggo dall’aver mangiato in un sol boccone Bianco è il colore del danno di Francesca Mannocchi, edito da Einaudi Stile Libero. Anche qui: evviva il passaparola; un’amica, che di lettere e letteratura...

Novel about a shipwreck

“The steel whale they walked in was deforming.” Let’s start talking about the genre immediately, even if the definition on the cover might seem strange, because more than a novel it is a story of a real event, with a precise and detailed search for testimonies, technically it is a non-fiction novel (translatable precisely with novel, in its broadest sense). As we have said, the book is the result of a long research by the...

Le non cose

Written by Marialia Calabretta This review is available only in the original language _______________________________ Questo libro parla di quanto saldarsi a terra, nel mondo reale, salvi. L’autore espone in modo limpido e razionale le cause e i rischi della progressiva perdita di contatto tra l’uomo e la realtà. Fantasticare, immaginare e proiettare sono attività meravigliose, ma vanno allenate e indirizzate. Le non-cose, così belle e desiderabili, abbagliano, catturano e distraggono: ci fanno dimenticare delle cose. La negatività della resistenza è...

Nothing true

“But the bodies of the sick transform the other bodies.” We chose this book to break the ice on the first ameeting of the book club created together with the friends of the Mondadori Bookstore in Barona (Milan). A collaboration born to relaunch shared reading even in the suburbs of large cities, and which we are sure will last over time. With the usual sincerity, we admit that we started reading the book unconvinced, without...
