By Arthur Bradford,Susanne Goga-Klinkenberg

Die Figuren in Arthur Bradfords Erzählungen sind auf der Suche nach ganz einfachen Dingen: einem Mitbewohner, einer billigen Matratze – der Liebe. Aber dann geschieht etwas, das sie heraushebt aus der Realität, das eine Tür aufstößt in eine andere size. used to be wäre, wenn guy sich in die Hündin seiner Freundin verliebte, wenn im Handschuhfach eine Riesenschnecke lebte oder der Hund, auf den guy aufpassen soll, von einer Pythonschlange verschlungen würde?Indem er die Frage »Was wäre wenn?« einfach zu Ende denkt, erschafft Arthur Bradford einen wunderbar skurrilen Kosmos – gleichermaßen bizarr wie bezaubernd.

La rosa (Piccola biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian Edition) by Robert Walser,A. Bianco

By Robert Walser,A. Bianco

"La rosa" è l’ultima pubblicazione voluta da Robert Walser nel 1925, prima di entrare nel lungo silenzio degli anni nella clinica in keeping with malattie mentali. Di questo libro disse egli stesso all’amica Resy Breitbach: «"La rosa" è uno dei miei libri migliori, dovrebbero prenderlo in mano solo anziane e nobili signore, perché in questo libro molto c’è da capire e molto da perdonare. È il più maleducato, il più giovanile dei miei libri». Con l. a. sua impeccabile ironia Walser sembra accennare al fatto che l. a. rosa si avvicina alla terra di nessuno della follia, pur mantenendo ancora quella superficie giocosa che in lui è sempre allarmante. Non solo: Walser ci fa intendere che questo è anche un libro di camuffate confessioni, riconoscibili in una sequenza di incantevoli autoritratti. Qui l. a. «prosa breve», elemento costitutivo dell’opera di Walser, tende a contrarsi, come se una forza lo spingesse a ridursi a crampo o advert arabesco, mentre l. a. dissociazione avanza, imponendole un fremito sottocutaneo. «La singolarità si assottiglia ogni giorno sempre di più. Sembra che ci sia una fabbrica al lavoro in line with l. a. normalizzazione dell’insolito» leggiamo in queste pagine. Walser fu il sabotatore celeste di quella fabbrica.

La mujer ducha (Spanish Edition) by Juan Sasturain

By Juan Sasturain

Este libro de relatos permite que nos adentremos tanto en el policial
como en los angeles leyenda apócrifa, en el realismo urbano como en l. a. geografía
mítica.


Un libro de relatos de Juan Sasturain es una galería de mundos y
paisajes bien definidos y diferenciados, siempre memorables. En obras de
esta índole, el lector, atento al rastro de cada personaje, convierte la
evasión en encantamiento, el gusto en adicción. Es difícil salir ileso
de estas historias que nos permiten revivir emociones sumergidas en la
nostalgia: los mitos del fútbol tal como eran en los angeles infancia, imaginar
de nuevo el pasado remoto, los caballeros andantes y sus proezas épicas.
Todo eso y más ocurre en «La mujer ducha», aunque el elogio del libro no
pueda siquiera rozar los angeles experiencia de leerlo.

Mandami a dire e altri racconti (I grandi tascabili Vol. by Pino Roveredo

By Pino Roveredo

“I personaggi di Roveredo vivono spesso ai margini della vita o nell’ombra; egli ne racconta con partecipe affetto e rispetto le violenze anche brutali e le umiliazioni subite, gli sbandamenti o le canagliate ma anche il generoso e spavaldo coraggio, le piroette e i capitomboli con cui essi cercano di sfuggire alla morsa della vita, i sogni ingenui ma potenti che li portano aldilà dei confini del reale. Questa familiarità con l. a. debolezza e insieme con l. a. sacralità dell’esistenza è irriverente, perché non arretra dinanzi advert alcuna anche impudica o imbarazzante miseria e non s’inchina advert alcuna solennità, ma l. a. tira giù dal piedistallo, dando del tu, o anche peggio, al Padreterno e mostrando i rattoppi nei calzoni o i buchi nelle calze della vita.”

Dall’Introduzione di Claudio Magris
