Download e-book for iPad: Honolulu e altri racconti (Biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian by W. Somerset Maugham,V. Bianconi

By W. Somerset Maugham,V. Bianconi

È impossibile, leggendo i superbi ‘racconti orientali’ qui raccolti, non finire irretiti negli scabri avamposti di un Impero britannico ormai presago della tremendous. Un mondo nostalgico e artificiale, in perenne contrappunto con una giungla evocata da rapidi tocchi eppure incombente e foriera di sciagura; un mondo che penetriamo con l’occhio disincantato ma insaziabilmente curioso di Maugham, sospinti ogni volta verso un inesorabile finale – spesso tragico, ma quasi mai catartico. E nel frattempo avremo visto andare in pezzi le identità apparenti dei protagonisti, intrappolati in lividi e rovinosi rapporti gerarchici, furenti ricatti incrociati, colpevoli idilli lavati col sangue. Ancora una volta i sapienti congegni narrativi di Maugham, qui celati nell’evocativo situation della Malesia, del Borneo o delle Hawaii, compongono intrecci perfetti e storie crudeli – che ci consentono di attraversare, rimanendo indenni, le passioni umane più fosche.

By Glen Pourciau

Intense internal and outer monologues resonate during the lives of Glen Pourciau’s characters. We pay attention the voice of a guy who won't cease speaking, the voice of a guy who doesn't are looking to speak, the voice of a guy surprised into silence through his surprising know-how of a wish he didn't understand he felt, and the voice of a guy suffering to just accept his coming near near death.

Inhabiting an outwardly bland panorama that overlays inner questions and routine confusion, the narrators of those ten intensely felt tales attempt to appreciate their various predicaments. Conflicts with acquaintances come up, troubling thoughts go back, suspicions and fears lead humans into remoted corners as distances open up within them and round them. And in these open areas, the occasionally funny, occasionally obsessive voices proceed their quest. within the ultimate tale, “Deep Wilderness,” the voices appear to fragment as a relatives comes apart.

While his characters fight to return to phrases with their internal wasteland, Glen Pourciau’s spare, riveting voice keeps a continuing presence. Invite is a debut assortment that speaks volumes.

Read e-book online Guardar las formas (Spanish Edition) PDF

By Alberto Olmos

Con Guardar las formas Alberto Olmos debuta en los angeles narrativa breve y nos ofrece una magnífica reflexión acerca de los angeles libertad creadora y el uso del lenguaje.

Un hombre se queda encerrado en una casa, mientras un escritor se encierra en un estilo. Una mujer ve dobles las botellas y el narrador ve dobles los adjetivos. Un macarra no sabe si a sus vecinos les ha tocado l. a. lotería, pero a él le ha tocado ser un cuento en primera character. Una inmigrante recibe en su teléfono móvil tres horas de silencio, y el autor pone los puntos suspensivos. También hay un anciano moribundo que quema todos sus libros, una carta que una niña leerá cuando sea adulta, un cuarentón que busca no cometer su crimen, un chaval que se hace un lío con el VHS y un jubilado que, como Alberto Olmos en este libro, consigna sus encuentros con l. a. vida. De amor se habla hacia atrás y de parejas hay dos combates.

Guardar las formas reúne doce maneras de ponerse por escrito, doce situaciones de riesgo donde l. a. soledad, el dinero, l. a. tecnología o los angeles muerte nos inspiran terror, empatía, fascinación o estremecimiento.

El cuento enseña a ceder enseguida los angeles palabra, y este debut de Alberto Olmos en los angeles narrativa breve, debut en el que abundan los angeles indagación y l. a. fiesta, trata sobre todo de dar voz a los otros, de huir de sí.

Sobre su anterior novela, Alabanza, l. a. crítica dijo...
«Se toma en serio al lector con l. a. voluntad de acorralarlo, desquiciarlo y hasta reanimarlo.»
Nadal Suau, El Cultural

«Resultará difícil que con el paso del tiempo este libro no se convierta en una de las referencias de l. a. narrativa española de las primeras décadas del siglo XXI.»
Revista de Letras

«Una historia honesta, minimalista e intelectualmente provocativa. Obscenamente buena. Sus páginas gozan de una excelente respiración, con un temblor contenido por momentos y expansivo cuando es preciso.»
Ángeles López, La Razón

«Rafael Reig escribió sobre Alberto Olmos [...] y dijo que period l. a. voz que opinaba con exasperación en contra del sentido común. No es mala definición para resumir esta novela, lamejor de su autor.»
Juan Ángel Juristo, ABC Cultural

«Alberto Olmos ha dado un valiente paso adelante en su ya brillante carrera literaria con su último trabajo, [...] una novela fluida y absorbente.»
Cambio 16

«Literaria, sentimental, vivencial.»
Guillermo Bursutil, La Opinión de Murcia
