Kerninon, Julia

My devotion / Julia Kerninon ; translated from the French by Alison Anderson

New York : Europa, 2020

Résumé: A subtle, captivating, and insightful exploration of the mysterious connections between love, submission, and creation. Helen and Franck, both born into high-ranking diplomatic families, meet in Rome as high-school students and immediately detect in each other, the wounded child hidden beneath their gilded social status. Their relationship becomes a dangerous, explosive mix of love and friendship. Immediately after Helen's graduation, they leave their past and family behind to move in together in her apartment in Amsterdam. While Helen immerses herself in her studies and embarks on a promising academic career, Frank, after a few difficult years, makes a spectacular debut on the Dutch Art scene with his first paintings. Helen remains faithfully by his side during his rise to fame, overseeing the domestic details of his life in apparent total self-abnegation. Are introverted Helen and flamboyant Franck who they really appear to be? Are they victims or monsters? Kerninon’s English language debut, full of masterfully orchestrated twists and turns, leaves these simple distinctions behind, and progresses into far more fascinating terrain.

Woolf, Virginia

A room of one's own = Una stanza tutta per sé / Virginia Woolf ; traduzione e cura di Maria Antonietta Saracino

16. ed.

Torino : Einaudi, 2020

ET Scrittori

Résumé: Nell'ottobre del 1928 Virginia Woolf fu invitata a tenere due conferenze sul tema Le donne e il romanzo. È l'occasione per elaborare in maniera sistematica le sue molte riflessioni su universo femminile e creatività letteraria. Risultato è questo straordinario saggio, vero e proprio manifesto sulla condizione femminile dalle origini ai giorni nostri, che ripercorre il rapporto donna-scrittura dal punto di vista di una secolare esclusione attraverso la doppia lente del rigore storico e della passione per la letteratura.

Carlotto, Massimo

Blues for outlaw hearths and old whores / Massimo Carlotto ; translated fron the Italian by Will Schutt

New York : Europa, 2020

World noir

Résumé: International secret police operations, drug trafficking, prostitution, and identity theft set the stage for the eternal struggle between Good and Evil. Acclaimed as one of today’s best contemporary noir writers, Massimo Carlotto reaches new heights in the most complex “Alligator” novel to date. Rich with biting humor, humanity, and psychological insight, this is an exemplary noir novel from a crime writer at the top of his game. Marco Buratti, a.k.a. the Alligator, and his partners Max the Memory and Beniamino Rossini have fallen into a trap laid by their worst enemy, Giorgio Pellegrini, a wanted man who has no intention of living as a fugitive for the rest of his life and turns state evidence, but something goes wrong. Blackmailed by a high government official, the Alligator and his partners are forced to investigate. But they’ve been framed: even if they discover who’s behind the crime, they’ll rot in prison. To survive, some rules will have to be bent, and others broken

La caccia allo Snark

Dodgson, Charles Lutwidge

La caccia allo Snark / Lewis Carroll ; traduzione e cura di Roberto Sanesi ; illustrazioni di Joseph Swain

Milano : SE, copyr. 2020

Assonanze ; 51

Résumé: Lewis Carroll pubblicò "La caccia allo Snark" nel 1876. Sin dal nome, composto da "shark" (squalo) e da "snake " (serpente), così da connettere in un unico termine due significati, lo Snark introduce un concetto di doppiezza, di ambiguità, di inafferrabilità. Come ogni "monstrum", lo Snark è il non-visibile, il non-rappresentabile, che tuttavia, con stupore e terrore, percorre l'esistenza. In questo poemetto eroicomico destinato a diventare uno dei punti di riferimento del surrealismo, e che, come scrive Sanesi, "nulla vieta di associare alla tipica quest della letteratura medioevale ", il lettore è messo di fronte allo sviluppo autonomo di due situazioni o dimensioni simultanee.

Bloody January / Alan Parks

New York : Europa, 2018

World noir

Résumé: An exciting, evocative first-in-series noir novel set in 1973 Glasgow, a city on the cusp of a heroin epidemic, featuring detective Harry McCoy. When an 18-year-old boy shoots a young woman dead in the middle of a busy Glasgow street and then commits suicide, McCoy knows it can’t be a random act of violence. With a newbie partner in tow, McCoy uses his underworld network to build a picture of a secret society run by Glasgow’s wealthiest family, the Dunlops. Drugs, sex, incest; every nefarious predilection is catered to, at the expense of the lower echelon of society, an underclass that includes McCoy’s best friend from reformatory school – drug-Tsar Stevie Cooper – and his on-off girlfriend, a prostitute, Janey. But with McCoy’s boss calling off the hounds, and his boss’ boss unleashing their own, the Dunlops are apparently untouchable. McCoy has other ideas.

Shelter in place / Alexander Maksik

New York : Europa, 2016

Résumé: Set in the Pacific Northwest in the jittery, jacked-up early 1990s, Shelter in Place, by one of America’s most thrillingly defiant contemporary authors, is a stylish literary novel about the hereditary nature of mental illness, the fleeting intensity of youth, the obligations of family, and the dramatic consequences of love. Joseph March, a twenty-one year-old working class kid from Seattle, is on top of the world. He has just graduated college and his future beckons, unencumbered, limitless, magnificent. Joe’s life implodes when he starts to suffer the symptoms of bipolar disorder, and, not long after, his mother kills a man she’s never met with a hammer. Joe moves to White Pine, Washington, where his mother is serving time and his father has set up house. He is followed by Tess Wolff, a fiercely independent woman with whom he has fallen in love. The lives of Joe, Tess, and Joe’s father fall into the slow rhythm of daily prison visits followed by beer and pizza at a local bar. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie March, Joe’s mother, is gradually becoming a local heroine—many see her crime as a furious, exasperated act of righteous rebellion. Tess, too, has fallen under her spell. Spurred on by Anne-Marie’s example, Tess enlists Joe in a secret, violent plan that will forever change their lives. Maksik sings of modern America’s battered soul and of the lacerating emotions that make us human. Magnetic and masterfully told, Shelter in Place is about the things in life we are willing to die for, and those we’re willing to kill for.
