When I hit you, or, A portrait of the writer as a young wife / Meena Kandasamy

New York : Europa, 2020

Résumé: India dei giorni nostri. Lei è una scrittrice, una poetessa, una giovane attivista dal passato tormentato e il cuore spezzato. Lui è un docente universitario, un ex guerrigliero maoista, un uomo che, parlando della rivoluzione, sembra più intenso di qualsiasi poesia, più commovente di qualsiasi bellezza. Si conoscono, si innamorano, decidono in fretta di sposarsi. La coppia si trasferisce in una lontana città costiera dell'India, senza vincoli né programmi, pronta a un salto nel vuoto che li vedrà protagonisti insieme. Lì, dietro le porte ben chiuse di una villetta circondata da un giardino selvaggio, il marito perfetto cambia volto, trasformandosi poco a poco in un carceriere e in un carnefice. La limitazione delle libertà della moglie - vestiti, trucco, capelli; e poi: email, telefonate, fino al divieto di scrivere - traccia l'inizio di una spirale di violenza e sopraffazione che vedrà la donna sempre più sola e terrorizzata, abbandonata anche dalla famiglia di origine. Finché lei stessa non deciderà di reagire riprendendo in mano il controllo della propria storia.

Di Pietrantonio, Donatella

A girl returned / Donatella Di Pietrantonio ; translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein

New York : Europa, 2019

Résumé: “I was the Arminuta, the girl returned. I spoke another language, I no longer knew who I belonged to. The word ‘mama’ stuck in my throat like a toad. And, nowadays, I really have no idea what kind of place mother is. It is not mine in the way one might have good health, a safe place, certainty.” Told with an immediacy and a rare expressive intensity that has earned it countless adoring readers and one of Italy’s most prestigious literary prizes, A Girl Returned is a powerful novel rendered with sensitivity and verve by Ann Goldstein, translator of the works of Elena Ferrante. Set against the stark, beautiful landscape of Abruzzo in central Italy, this is a compelling story about mothers and daughters, about responsibility, siblings, and caregiving. Without warning or explanation, an unnamed 13-year-old girl is sent away from the family she has always thought of as hers to live with her birth family: a large, chaotic assortment of individuals whom she has never met and who seem anything but welcoming. Thus begins a new life, one of struggle, tension, and conflict, especially between the young girl and her mother. But in her relationship with Adriana and Vincenzo, two of her newly acquired siblings, she will find the strength to start again and to build a new and enduring sense of self.

Paris : Albin Michel, 2016

Résumé: Akhila est employée aux impôts. Eternelle célibataire, cette quadragénaire n'a jamais été libre de mener sa vie comme elle l'entendait : toujours la fille, la soeur, la tante de quelqu'un, celle qui fait vivre la famille. Sur un coup de tête, elle prend un aller simple pour Kanyakumari, une petite ville balnéaire du sud de l'Inde. Dans l'intimité du sleeping - le fameux « Compartiment pour dames » - qu'elle partage avec cinq autres compagnes, Akhila ose leur poser la question qui la hante depuis longtemps : une femme a-t-elle vraiment besoin d'un homme pour être heureuse et épanouie ? Compartiment pour dames est le best-seller qui a révélé Anita Nair. Un roman délicieux, chaleureux, tendre, qui nous ouvre le coeur de ces femmes indiennes dont nous sommes finalement si proches. Un beau voyage à la découverte de soi qui éveillera des résonances en chacun de nous.

Le pays que j'aime : roman / Caterina Bonvicini ; traduit de l'italien par Lise Caillat

[Paris] : Gallimard, 2016

Du monde entier

Résumé: Valerio et Olivia grandissent ensemble dans la magnifique villa de la famille Morganti, à Bologne : Olivia est l’héritière des Morganti, de riches entrepreneurs du bâtiment, et Valerio est le fils du jardinier. Après avoir partagé une enfance de rêve, ils ne cessent de se séparer, de se retrouver, puis de se perdre de nouveau. Valerio suit d’abord sa mère à Rome quand celle-ci quitte son père. Plus tard, alors qu’ils sont étudiants, c’est Olivia qui part à Paris pour échapper aux disputes de son clan. Chacun d’eux est animé de forces centrifuges qui les empêchent de poursuivre leur relation, aussi sincère que burlesque. Valerio est ambitieux et poursuit le rêve de devenir magistrat, Olivia, elle, tente désespérément de trouver son chemin. Autour d’eux, c’est toute l’Italie berlusconienne qui tangue comme un bateau ivre et avance inexorablement vers un naufrage tragicomique. Le pays que j’aime parcourt l’histoire italienne récente, de 1975 à 2013, à travers le destin d’un couple, d’une famille et de toute une société. Les répliques fusent dans cette cruelle comédie à l’italienne, menée tambour battant grâce au talent de Caterina Bonvicini.

Dracula / Bram Stoker

London : Harper Press, 2011

Collins classics

Résumé: Earnest and naive solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to organise the estate of the infamous Count Dracula at his crumbling castle in the ominous Carpathian Mountains. Through notes and diary entries, Harker keeps track of the horrors and terrors that beset him at the castle, telling his fiancé Mina of the Count’s supernatural powers and his own imprisonment. Although Harker eventually manages to escape and reunite with Mina, his experiences have led to a mental breakdown of sorts. Meanwhile in England, Mina’s friend Lucy has been bitten and begins to turn into a vampire. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, a previous suitor of Lucy’s, Seward, and Lucy’s fiancé Holmwood attempt to thwart Count Dracula and his attempts on Lucy and consequently Mina’s life. Arguably the most enduring Gothic novel of the 19th Century, Bram Stoker’s Dracula is as chilling today in its depiction of the vampire world and its exploration of Victorian values as it was at its time of publication.

The unbearable lightness of Scones / Alexander McCall Smith

New York : Anchor Books, 2010

Résumé: Featuring all the quirky characters we have come to know and love, The Unbearable Lightness of Scones, finds Bertie, the precocious six-year-old, still troubled by his rather overbearing mother, Irene, but seeking his escape in the Cub Scouts.

Cyril, the gold-toothed star of the whole show, succumbs to the kind of romantic temptation that no dog can resist and creates a small problem, or rather six of them, for his friend and owner Angus Lordie.

Nineteen eighty-four / George Orwell

London : Penguin, 2008

Résumé: 'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thriteen.' Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101... Nineteen Eight-Four is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime. 'More relevant to today than almost any other book that you can think of.' - Jo Brand 'Right up there among my favourite books. . . I read it again and again.' - Margaret Atwood

Dodgson, Charles Lutwidge

Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking-glass / Lewis Carroll ; illustrations by John Tenniel ; introduction and notes by Michael Irwin

Ware : Wordsworth, 2001

Wordsworth classics

Résumé: This selection of Carroll's works includes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, both containing the famous illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. No greater books for children have ever been written. The simple language, dreamlike atmosphere, and fantastical characters are as appealing to young readers today as ever they were. Meanwhile, however, these apparently simple stories have become recognised as adult masterpieces, and extraordinary experiments, years ahead of their time, in Modernism and Surrealism. Through wordplay, parody and logical and philosophical puzzles, Carroll engenders a variety of sub-texts, teasing, ominous or melancholy. For all the surface playfulness there is meaning everywhere. The author reveals himself in glimpses.

Animal farm / George Orwell ; edited by Ronald Carter

Harmondsworth : Penguin Books, 1999

Penguin student edition

Résumé: When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. Orwell’s chilling ‘fairy story’ is a timeless and devastating satire of idealism betrayed by power and corruption.
