  • Resta con me (Italian Edition) by Elizabeth Strout

    By Elizabeth Strout

    Torna in libreria Elizabeth Strout, con un romanzo finora inedito in Italia, Resta con me, scritto dopo il fortunato esordio di Amy e Isabelle e prima della vittoria del Pulitzer con Olive Kitteridge (120.000 copie vendute in Italia, vincitrice del Premio Bancarella e del Premio Pulitzer nel 2009).

    Tyler Caskey è una presenza insolita in step with los angeles comunità di West Annett. E' giovane e i suoi sermoni sono brillanti, frutto di una preparazione e di una sensibilità fuori dal comune. Perché Tyler è nettamente diverso dalle precedenti advisor spirituali che los angeles comunità ha conosciuto finora: ha carisma, e una moglie di grande bellezza e sensualità accanto. Quasi uno schiaffo di vitalità in step with tutta los angeles cittadina. Eppure un giorno tutto può cambiare, l'attrazione trasformarsi in sospetto e maldicenza. E non a causa di una colpa, di un errore. l. a. giovane signora Caskey muore. Una morte che travolgerà il marito e le loro bambine in modo irreversibile. los angeles figlia maggiore, Katherine, di appena cinque anni, smette di parlare chiudendosi in un silenzio ferreo; e Tyler non trova più le parole adatte in chiesa, né alcuna misericordia all'interno di una comunità che si rivela essere ottusa, arida, distante. Cosa resta, quindi, del conforto religioso? Poco o niente, se di fronte alla fragilità di un lutto che si apre come una voragine nessuno riesce a compenetrarsi nel dolore altrui, se le meschinità di una quotidianità prosciugata di ogni calore si moltiplicano tra le mille illazioni che corrono lungo i fili del telefono propagando sciocche storie di adulterio, o di malattia mentale. E' vero, sono i conformisti anni Cinquanta, e West Annett è nel Maine, una terra di antichi pionieri rigidamente protestanti. Ma Resta con Me si dilata oltre ogni confine e ci conduce fin nelle pieghe più oscure dei rapporti affettivi, lì dove ogni perdita può rivoluzionare una vita e in step with uno slancio di volontà si arriva a riemergere con una nuova consapevolezza.
