Adoration

“Everyone is always someone else’s district, also Latina was a district.” Adoration is a novel in which the lives of adolescents intertwine, divided between the tragic death of their young friend Elena, constantly evoked, and a summer like many others, divided between the blossoming of bitter loves and new self-discoveries. The writing tends to have a story with an interesting core, more current and realistic than ever, but with a development, in our opinion, confused...

Of mice and man

Written by Maria Guidi This review is available only in the original language. _________________________________________________________________________ Scritto da Steinbeck nel 1937, Uomini e topi è uno di quei romanzi che – a prescindere dal trascorrere del tempo – risultano sempre attuali e lasciano un segno profondo nel lettore. È la storia di un’amicizia, quella tra George e Lennie, che si spostano da un ranch all’altro lavorando dove capita, con l’intenzione di mettere da parte abbastanza denaro da “avere un...

The lost bread

“I  wanted to go back into my mother’s womb and never be born again.” The book is a dry and poignant autobiography. The writer tells us about her life, from childhood until today, and entrusts us, without dwelling in pity, the difficult life lived in Hungary between the poverty of her family, the traumatic experience of deportation to the concentration camp, suffering and agony. and finally living as a survivor. We could easily tell ourselves...

Native language

THE FIRST REVIEW OF THE MONTH WILL BE DEDICATED TO THE NEW VOICE: “MONDAY DI-VERSO” “Es regnet so stark und es ist so schön, wenn es so stark regnet.” Dirty words. Clean words. What can a word dirty? A word is a construction of sounds, associations, meanings. It has its own physical consistency, a different flavor for each mouth. There is a love for words that not everyone understands because not everyone is used to...

Two lives

“We were not born to become wise, but to resist, escape, steal some pleasure from a world that was not made for us.” Two Lives is a book that does not lie: it is exactly the story of two lives of the author’s two friends, Pia Pera and Rocco Carbone. It is a novel that moves us although it is immersed in a disarming narrative simplicity, precisely because it is configured, from the very first...
