What We Talk About When We Talk About Love

“Something died inside me, – she tells me. – It took a long time, but now he’s dead. And you killed it, as if you had hit it with an ax.” Collection of short stories, including a very short two-page one, in which love is examined and dissected in many of its forms, with the simple story of everyday life. Family and non-family dynamics, in which it is easy to collide with the ghosts of...

After the Quake

Written by Micol Rizzo This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Chiunque mi segua da un po’, conosce la mia passione per questo autore che, in un modo o nell’altro, riesce sempre a portarci attraverso meravigliosi viaggi emotivi ed introspettivi, mettendoci nella condizione di porci domande e dubbi, con una delicatezza che pochi autori possono vantare. “Tutti i figli di Dio danzano” narra sei storie diverse, con un unico tema centrale a fare...

Human Stain

“The little bit of stoicism I have inside goes away, and the desire not to die, to never die, becomes almost unbearable.” Unique novel, to be read calmly, without haste, and to recommend to your friends as a show of affection. The narrating voice is that of Nathan Zuckerman, who tells the story of his friend Coleman Silk, senior lecturer and principal of Athena College, starting from the summer of 1998, which led to the...

The children’s train

“Maybe I’ll always be just this: one who has gone away.” Viola Ardone tells us a little known reality, but which is part of Italian history: from an initiative of the Communist Party, trains loaded with children depart from the South, torn from the misery in which they live in their homes, which will be temporarily entrusted to some Emilian families. We are in Italy in 1946, a country that must be rebuilt after the...

Roderick Duddle

Written by Cristina Bonafede (Bookseller at Punto Einaudi Milano) Translated  by Arianna Acquafredda _________________________________________________________________________ A lousy pub, The Red Goose, run by an always drunk tubby (or at least we imagine him so) who organizes different illegal activities, innkeepers who become wives or prostitutes on occasion, an abbey with moneymaker nuns with misleading features, orphans abandoned in the worst hands and a patchwork of quaint characters, sometimes gloomy, in any case malicious: let’s shake all...

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

“I think prime numbers are like life. They are very logical but you can never find out the rules.” A story to be read in one breath, the narrating voice is so fresh and agile. It is a first-person story; the narrator is the protagonist, Christopher Boom: a fifteen-year-old boy who has Asperger’s syndrome, hence behavioral disorders and developed mathematical skills. We were overwhelmed by this game to which we were subjected by the author,...

The city of living people

Written by Alessia Agostinelli This review is available only in the original language. ______________________________________________________   Ho appena terminato La città dei vivi di Nicola Lagioia e non posso nascondere il turbamento che ha accompagnato questa lettura fatta tutta d’un fiato. Pubblicato a Ottobre 2020 da Einaudi Editori, La citta’ dei vivi ripercorre le vicende umane e giudiziarie di un caso che sconvolse Roma e l’opinione pubblica italiana nel 2016, il brutale assassinio del giovane Luca Varani. Come nelle...

Almarina

“Hate is a constant gangrenous fear, it is a defense that has become misunderstanding.” Almarina is the story of Elizabeth who carries within herself a hidden tear, a profound pain on the basis of which she calibrates all her days; is the story of a teacher in a special school, detached from the earth and reality: we are in the juvenile prison of Nisidia, an island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. It is...

Borgo Sud

“For each of us there remained the certainty of the other at the bottom of the pain that we never confessed.” The Arminuta is back, ready to offer itself to the reader with her story which, after a troubled childhood, continues to be difficult and full of deviations always dictated by the decisions of others. Donatella Di Pietrantonio’s new book, Borgo sud, continues to tell us the story that the reader had already grown fond...

The number devil

Written by Giada Marino This review is available only in the original language. _______________________________________________________ Quello che ho intenzione di presentarvi oggi è un libro un pochino particolare, che a me è piaciuto tantissimo e che, sebbene è stato scritto per i ragazzi, è da consigliare anche agli adulti. Sto parlando del libro intitolato Il mago dei numeri. Di cosa parla? Be’, in una sola parola… di matematica. Ma non allarmatevi, se anche molti di voi...
