Elena Ferrante, Lažljivi život odraslih / The Lying Life of Adults

Scroll down for English Ferrante počinje uobičajeno žestoko, udarcem šake u glavu, direktno, beskompromisno uvodi nas u vrtlog svog pripovijedanja.

Cijeli roman vrtlog je zbivanja i nadasve vrtlog emocija koji povremeno prerasta u uragan. [...]

Jenny Erpenbeck, Večer svih dana

Što nam je sudbina? Što je sudbina svakog pojedinačnog čovjeka i možemo li utjecati na nju? Određuje li svaki naš potez budućnost direktno ili ju određuje nešto drugo, izvanjsko, nešto više ili možda nešto niže? Kada bismo promijenili „loš kraj“ što bi se tada dogodilo? Loš kraj života, loš kraj priče. Bi li onda život [...]

I Give It to You by Valerie Martin

Why do people choose to write, discuss, investigate, study historical periods, times and places unconnected to themselves and to their own heritage, history, country and continent they come from? Why would an Italian have to be annoyed with an American writing about Mussolini decades after World War II? Actually, there shouldn’t be a reason. I, [...]
