Elena Ferrante La vita bugiarda degli adulti

I get this book as present from my dear friend Elena G. and I am sorry to criticize the book, but I have to. In the quadrilogy, in spite of violence and poor relations, there is always an attempt to lift oneself up, there is always somebody acting as inspiration. Elena lifts up Lila and Lila lifts up Elena when Elena does not want to read, teacher Oliviero inspires both Elena and Lila, even the two dolls, are source of inspiration, as when they disappear, Don Achille gives money to the girls so they can buy their first book, little women.
In “La vita bugiarda degli adulti” there is nothing positive, only lies, bad sex described in such a masculine way that I start to think again that Ferranti is not a woman, at least she was not alone to write this book. The symbol of the book, the bracelet, is mentioned too many times, as symbol of bad relations that do not improve. I hope young people will not read this book as it gives very little hope, while we need hope. 1573727705674_f

Becoming Myself #Yalom

Becoming Myself: A Psychiatrist’s Memoir by Irvin D. Yalom
34219966
A special book for a special travel. I read it on my mobile phone on the flight from Dubai to Stockolm as my kindle had died in Pakistan after a glorious life of 5 years.
The book reminds me that I have to remind me and other people about the importance of having a network of people around us, not because you will need these people in the future (as somebody interprets the concept of network), but because we need them now, and they need us.
The book refers to many beautiful books, it is about empathy, family, therapy, research, interdisciplinarity, love, emigration, the relationship to your parents. I read it in Italian. I strongly recomend it.

This is a special book. I found it in my mailbox at IDI and I do not know who to thank. It maked me travel back to kindergarden time, whith the nuns, the drawings, the new friends. It is a book I would not have bought my self but now I am so happy I have read it. It also inspires me to go ahead with Tappetina and hopefully transform it into a game or animation. Thanks!

Trovato in biblioteca a Trondheim e letto ieri sera in tre ore. Si sono stata sveglia fino all’una di notte per vagare di nuovo per Via Po, Via Roma, per prendere i tram a Torino quando c’era la Pantera e i primi emigrati e c’ero anche io. Come mi e’ piaciuto, come mi sono divertita e ho scoperto che e’ stato fatto anche un film.

#Torino #cuore

La maestrina dalla penna rossa, il maestro, Garrone, il piccolo scrivano fiorentino, personaggi che da piu’ di quaranta anni vivono nella mia testa e nel mio cuore. Quanto ne parlava la mia nonna Isabella del libro Cuore e quanto ci piangevo io. Il mio primo libro o uno dei primi,  non ce ne erano tanti di libri per ragazzi quando ero bambina io. Camminando per Torino mi sono imbattuta in questa porta. Non e’ un caso che ami cosi’ tanto Torino e che Cuore & Computer si intitoli Cuore & Computer.
