Temptation

 “FRIDAY DI-VERSO” “The building is sumptuous but the kingdom is in ruins.” First you have to sleep on it. You have to fall asleep with questions, images in your head, trust that they will clear up behind closed eyelids, you have to let the visions settle, ask yourself what was real, what not, ask yourself if it matters. The plot is soon told. There is a man who is a hunter, a father and a surgeon,...

The Scarlet Letter

Written by Micol Rizzo This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ “La lettera scarlatta” di Nathaniel Hawthorne, si può forse considerare uno dei romanzi più influenti nella letteratura americana, capace di trattare temi quali il puritanesimo e la rigidità di una società come quella del XVII secolo a Boston. Hester, la protagonista, si macchia di quello che all’epoca veniva considerato un crimine assoluto ed imperdonabile: l’adulterio. Come penitenza, si vede condannata a...

Teeth

“How many secrets hide the people with whom we spend life.” A quarrel for futile reasons in a couple, the violent gesture of the woman who with an ashtray breaks the incisors teeths of her partner, and a bottomless pit of memories and obsessions and fears and doubts that opens under the feet of our protagonist, now a name toothless. An “open mouth” journey – if you let us pass the joke – inside and...

And the Birds Rained Down by

THE FIRST REVIEW OF THE MONTH WILL BE DEDICATED TO THE NEW VOICE: “MONDAY DI-VERSO” “Happiness simply needs to be indulged.” How is it that these old men in books always cut off our legs? What is this tenderness that hits low when it seemed to us that we were immovable and disenchanted? “And the Birds Rained Down by” is a 2011 novel (anticipating by a few years “Our souls at night” by K. Haruf,...

I hate Him

“That God was nothing but a fantasy created by men to give refuge to our fears?” A strong, powerful and weighty book. The title itself is already explanatory of much of what you are going to read. The story is that of Faustino, a silent child, who takes a long time to speak compared to his peers, and goes to discover the world through the discovery of key words that he writes down in a...

The year that was Christmas twice in Rome

“Because happiness is not produced by cutting: it almost never works, as with wisteria.” A gang of three makeshift “thieves” has a mission that is far from being equal to them. The author offers us a correct characterization of all our protagonists, so much so that we can imagine them without any difficulty in the scene of a comic film: the novel has a clear cinematic setting which constitutes its true strength. Without revealing too...
