    Harry Brightman

    "Mettete un individuo come Harry Brightman in qualche eremitaggio campagnolo e i contadini vicini lo cacceranno dal paese con roncole e forconi."

    La prima parte mi è sembrata un po' lenta, si ripende dalla metà in poi. Tutto sommato un buon libro, 3 stelline sono sufficienti.

    I loved this book by Paul Auster, and I confirm him as one of my favourite american writers.
    Fine flowing actual language, with studied and incisive vocabulary. His cynical irony envolves also on sad and uneasy matters.
    The event takes shape little by little. Slowly but so interesting.
    The protagonist begins sort of journey alone, with minimum targets.
    However life brings him weird surprises, that built up a singular castle of lives in which he would be an important character, more than he could have ever been figured out.
    I imagined, as often happens in Auster’s novels, he himself in the protagonist shoes.

    "Stavo cercando un posto tranquillo per morire. Qualcuno mi raccomandò Brooklyn". Un incipit simile pare aprire la strada ad un romanzo sulla vecchiaia e l'attesa della morte, invece Paul Auster ridona vita al suo protagonista immergendolo nella vivace realtà di Brooklyn e in una serie di eventi ed incontri. specialmente incontri, dato che la vita si compone principalmente di incontri e grazie ad essi muta e si ridefinisce. e questo può accadere ad ogni età, anche quando si è ormai convinti di dover solo cercare un posto tranquillo per morire.
