Zadie Smith - Cambiare idea
Italian | Minimum Fax | 2010 | ISBN: 8875212926 | 424 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Nei saggi e nei ritratti raccolti in "Cambiare idea" Zadie Smith rievoca la grandezza di attrici come Katharine Hepburn e Anna Magnani e riflette sulla potenza retorica di Barack Obama; scrive pagine rivelatrici sulla sua vita familiare e fornisce consigli preziosi agli aspiranti scrittori; descrive il proprio viaggio nelle bidonville della Liberia, ma anche il soggiorno a Los Angeles durante la settimana degli Oscar; analizza l'opera di maestri della letteratura come Vladimir Nabokov, Franz Kafka, e David Foster Wallace. Il risultato è una ricognizione godibile quanto autorevole di mille aspetti del nostro panorama culturale; ma anche una sorta di diario personale in cui tocchiamo con mano la storia e la sensibilità di un'autrice di straordinario talento.

Booth Tarkington - Alice Adams
Italian | Elliot | 2013 | EPUB | Pages 164 | ISBN: 8861923739 | 3 Mb

Alice Adams apparve nel 1921, pochi anni prima della Grande Depressione, in un’America ancora ottimista ma inconsapevolmente avviata allo sconquasso. L’anno dopo il romanzo vinse il Pulitzer e nel ’35, superata la crisi, venne trasposto in pellicola da George Stevens (con Katharine Hepburn nel ruolo di Alice). Quella di cui Booth Tarkington scriveva era una borghesia già spaventata, e forse non è un caso che dalla sua penna sia uscito un personaggio come la giovane eroina protagonista di questo romanzo, ora tradotto per la prima volta in italiano.
