Download e-book for iPad: La maestra dei colori (Italian Edition) by Aimee Bender

Los angeles scrittura di Aimee Bender è da sempre un inconfondibile combine di realismo e fantasia; in questa nuova raccolta di racconti l. a. sua voce, carica di sensualità e magia, continua a ridisegnare il mondo in maniera originale, senza concessioni al sentimentalismo e ai cliché della narrativa «femminile». Alcune storie sono ambientate al giorno d’oggi, fra youngster al centro commerciale o studentesse in un campus universitario; in altre fa capolino l’elemento surreale (un ragazzino che soffre di «analfabetismo facciale», cioè non riesce a distinguere il viso delle persone e los angeles loro espressione; un vecchietto inoffensivo che è convinto di essere un criminale nazista); altre ancora sono incantevoli esempi di «realismo magico» (una sarta viene rapita e condotta in un paese dell’Asia dove dovrà rammendare le tigri a cui si stanno strappando through le strisce) o rivisitazioni di fiabe classiche.
