Download PDF by Ennio Flaiano: Diario degli errori (Opere di Ennio Flaiano) (Italian

By Ennio Flaiano

Pochi libri sono rappresentativi di Flaiano come questo "Diario degli errori", con il suo irresistibile combination di illuminismo tenebroso e pessimismo comico prima che cosmico. Disteso lungo l'arco di un ventennio (dal 1950 ai primi anni Settanta) e costruito avendo negli occhi i luoghi e i volti di tanti viaggi (da Fregene advert Atene, da Parigi a Hong Kong, da Zurigo a brand new York a Bangkok), il "Diario" brulica infatti di pensieri che sperimentano tutte le forme possibili del rapporto tra l. a. mente e los angeles realtà. Vi troviamo velenosi calembour concentrati come saggi, aforismi e massime perforanti e definitivi, microritratti di taglio, apologhi surreali e corrosivi, sequenze interrotte, tra incanto e sarcasmo: sugli resort francesi, dove i mobili sono «come nella tavola che sul Larousse accompagna l. a. voce: digital camera da letto», sulle vetrine olandesi accanto alle case secentesche, sui bambini monaci thailandesi che ridono e bevono il tè, sulla sporcizia e le costruzioni nuovissime di Beirut, sulle «riscattabili» taxi-girl di Hong Kong, sui filippini che cantano senza tregua, e ovviamente sul «paesetto italiano» di giocatori al Totocalcio. L'irrefrenabile tendenza all'autodistruzione della specie umana pervade "Diario degli errori" come un malinconico Leitmotiv: ma los angeles crudele esattezza della tassonomia è in Flaiano venata della pietas del moralista disilluso. Quella pietas che gli fa citare l. a. chic e disperata invocazione di Pierre ai massoni in Guerra e speed: «Occorre che l'uomo, governato dalle proprie sensazioni, scopra nella virtù attrattive sensuali».

By Ernesto Ferrero,Paola Mastrocola,Friederike Hausmann

Mit über achtzig lebt Quirina in einem Dorf in den Bergen und kommt noch intestine alleine klar: mit Kreuzworträtseln und dem Studium der großen Enzyklopädie, vor allem aber der Pflege des geliebten Gartens, Urbild kosmischer Harmonie. Doch eines Morgens ist er mit Maulwurfshügeln übersät, und Quirinas geregelte Welt steht Kopf. was once soll sie tun? Plötzlich geben sich die Besucher die Klinke in die Hand, und jeder weiß guten Rat: Die Dorfbewohner kennen alte Hausmittel, die Tochter in der Stadt recherchiert im net und schickt ihre neurotische Katze, ja sogar der weltfremde Schwiegersohn ruft an und zitiert Beispiele aus Geschichte und Literatur. Unglaublich, wie viele kluge Köpfe sich mit dem Maulwurf beschäftigt haben: von Marx bis Shakespeare, Nietzsche und Darwin bis zu Kafka, Primo Levi und John le Carré … Je mehr Quirina – und mit ihr der Leser – über den Quälgeist erfährt, umso interessanter wird das Tier, bis die alte Dame ihren Feind schließlich vor allzu heftigen Vernichtungsaktionen in Schutz nimmt – und schmerzlich vermisst, als die Wühlerei unvermittelt ein Ende hat. Doch wer weiß, nächstes Frühjahr …

Aliénor Debrocq's À voie basse (French Edition) PDF

By Aliénor Debrocq

« Un truc glauque, pensait-elle. Écrire un truc bien glauque entre deux tétées. Pour s'échapper. Retrouver un peu de consistance, suspendre los angeles dilution. Celle des fluides – lait maternel, salive du nourrisson, pipis
en série. Celle de l’amour absolu dont elle avait longtemps rêvé mais qu’elle n’imaginait pas rencontrer dans le regard bleu foncé et les gazouillis naissants d’un tout petit bout de fille. »
Tout start sans crier gare, par une attente longue de promesses. Neuf mois dans los angeles pénombre d’un corps de femme. Puis vient los angeles vive lumière du most popular jour et, avec elle, les étincelles, les compromis, les portes qui claquent. Treize nouvelles pour dire l’éblouissement, los angeles peur, los angeles joie, l’intimité des chambres et l. a. dureté du monde où s’amorcent ces vies, dans un grand silence ou un grand bruit.

Aliénor Debrocq vit à Bruxelles, où elle est journaliste et professeure de littérature. Le reste du temps, entre écriture et broutilles quotidiennes, elle a choisi : elle s’assied face à son vieux secrétaire et tourne ledos à l. a. poussière.

Download e-book for iPad: El muro de la memoria (Spanish Edition) by Anthony Doerr

By Anthony Doerr

El muro de l. a. memoria reúne cuatro historias inéditas del autor de La luz que no puedes ver, que nos hablan de l. a. conmovedora fortuna de vivir en este mundo.

Cada hora, aquí y allá, un sinfín de recuerdos desaparecen para siempre. Y, al mismo tiempo, los niños, explorando lo que les es desconocido, rehacen el mundo de nuevo con los angeles memoria, los angeles fuente de sentido en nuestras vidas, el frágil hilo que nos conecta con nosotros y con los demás.

En «El muro de l. a. memoria», un joven sudafricano halla en un secreto del pasado el poder de redimir una vida. En «Río Niemen», un adolescente huérfano se muda a Lituania para vivir con su abuelo y descubre un mundo en el que el mito se hace realidad. «El pueblo 113» nos lleva hasta l. a. presa de las Tres Gargantas, en China, y el pueblo en ciernes del hundimiento. Finalmente, «El más allá» presenta a una mujer atormentada por el Holocausto del que escapó, y que solo encontrará consuelo en el afecto de su nieto.

Reseñas:
«Una extraordinariamente rica y matizada reflexión sobre los angeles memoria, el tiempo y l. a. pérdida. Doerr es un estilista exquisito.»
The Guardian

«Extraño y hermoso. Doerr escribe sobre grandes cuestiones, los imponderables, los mayores temores existenciales, y lo hace sin miedo.»
The ny Times

«Asombrosamente bueno.»
The Oregonian

«Un pequeño clásico de l. a. literatura contemporánea.»
The nationwide Post

«La voz de Doerr no tiene límites.»
