Sostiene Pereira Free read ¾ 0 Noscere Antonio Tabucchi uno dei maggiori scrittori italiani del nostro tempo al grande pubblico l'alto messaggio etico della storia si incarna perfettamente nel ritmo incalzante della scrittura che sa addensarsi in una narrazione essenziale e battente come distendersi nelle volute meditative di dialoghi sempre sorprendenti e coinvolgenti Per tutto ciò e per l'affetto pieno di riguardi con cui l'autore lo costruisce passo passo Pereira resta un personaggio indimenticabile da tener presente con gratitudine ad ogni inciampo della nostra perplessa storia di uomi.

Sostiene Pereira Free read ¾ 0 A una sorta di verbale un magnifico verbale giudiziario redatto non si sa da chi ma forse in ultima analisi dal tribunale della Storia il vecchio giornalista Pereira affida la sua vicenda di sfiduciata acuiescenza e di risveglio di riscatto umano e politico per una scelta di campo non più dilazionabile Pereira lo incontriamo nella Lisbona del 1938 vedovo molto afflitto e malato di cuore grasso e stanco caporedattore delle pagine culturali di un piccolo giornale del pomeriggio; è una Lisbona stritolata dalla morsa dell'oppressione fascista di Salazar dall'onn. It was one of those days when I had a good meal the fresh herbs the right salt the approachable variety the generous portions the nice host I walked back home with a content smile Upon unlocking the door a whiff of scented potpourri filled my senses and I sunk on my couch thinking a day well spent a tummy well fed I then switched off the lights of the living room and yawned to usher in a good night s sleep I got up the next morning at the invigorating slant of the sunshine and was enveloped by a good feeling My mom called up while I was sipping teaHow was yesterday We couldn t catch upIt was good mamma A fruitful day at workAnd your dinner I hope you ate something properI did In fact a good meal at The ZephyrShe didn t wait for me to finish Good meal Aha So what did you eat away my girlAnd I blurted almost the same instant Oh I had a ermm gently crushing my eyelid hang on I think dropping my palms to my lap ah well it was good and that s enough for one outing isn t it mammaNo I am not aiming at your cupcakes And I remember I am reviewing a book a rather interesting novella about Dr Pereira a senior editor of culture page in an evening newspaper of Lisbon of 1930s whose apolitical stand comes under fire when a passionate but troublesome young writer Rossi joins him as an assistant The story was replete with its elements a hesitant awkward yet endearing protagonist his ordinary life whose highlights were hidden in the contours of routine webs a uirky bunch of colleagues and acuaintances whose freuent entries and exits rendered the story a velvet drape of drama a politically charged environment that overshadowed the nascent cultural propagation and a constant waging war between his givings and misgivings I uite liked Pereira s demeanor a wise man on the other side of the age living a life just so he can write about literature and talk about the same to his dead wife s photograph Rossi was a well sketched representation of that aspect of human beings called habit which eventually draws us into the wells that our elders asked us not to peep into lest we fall prey to their bottomless depths The excessive shots of lemonade the chucklesome frown towards the caretaker the impulsive surges of benevolence the devout exercise for change the unexplained reasons of bonding and the adrenaline rush of breaking through they all had a current which when passed through me left me in pleasant uivers But once the current was off for good I no longer contained the firm after effects of the sensory pleasure just like my meal which although left a good taste in my mouth could not do enough to seal a signature dish or two in my mind long after I had scrubbed the last morsel off the plateFor me the entire experience of witnessing Tabucchi s Pereira to enact a slice of his life was like sitting in a new class with a moody teacher there were days when his diction and grasp sparkled with the luminosity of an emerald that refuses to get camouflaged even in the greenest icicles of a dense banyan tree but there were also days when he garbled innocuously in a haphazard gait like an autumn leaf on a gusty evening Such teachers can inspire if they strike us on a ripe day Unfortunately I remained in and out of sync with him with baffled alacrity But on a clear day when the temperature is indulgent and the heart happily asunder spotting the little crevices in the simple plain body of the creation both edible and sensory can be a revelation I maintainA 35 actually

review Sostiene Pereira

Sostiene Pereira Free read ¾ 0 Ipresente polizia politica dalla stretta ulteriore dovuta alla confinante guerra civile spagnola E lui Pereira si occupa sbadatamente di necrologi e ricorrenze ansioso soltanto di ristorarsi al Café Oruídea e di correre a casa per collouiare col ritratto della moglie morta Poi però il caso lo fa imbattere in una coppia di meravigliosi fidanzati antifascisti e l'epilogo tragico della loro conoscenza lo costringe a una sofferta presa di coscienza che culmina in un gesto e in una fuga verso la democraziaUscito nel 1994 il romanzo ha fatto per la prima volta co. Young people they can be a real pain when they play Daft Punk and that is not a randomly capitalized ualifying adjective I mean Daft Punk at a volume level that stuns the snoozing song thrush out the tree or when they turn the night time inner city streets into alcohol fuelled yodelling and technicolour burping festivals Nevertheless they are our stake in the future the next generation that will have to deal with what the previous one left behind whatever kind of a mess that isPereira is no longer young Reminders of his own mortality are knocking hard at his door his heart is not so good high blood pressure he should lose a few pounds since his wife died and left him alone with no other family he s let himself go a little He s not miserable but he is complacent He has a cosy job editor at the Lisbon paper now in charge of the weekly arts page a new rubric which mostly consists of Pereira s own translations of 19th century French classics which deliver him not a little satisfaction and pride The concierge from his apartment block comes in to do the cleaning and leaves him a meal prepared He has built himself a tidy wee nest a corner of the world where he can plod along at what he does no worriesThis cannot last Obviously No sand in the machinery no storyThe hot summer weather makes Pereira all the aware of his physical decline He sweats he is short of breath his heart races His thoughts turn to death so that an article in a literary journal which consists of an extract from a dissertation on the subject of death catches his eye He rings the young man who wrote the dissertation Arranges to meet this young man And as he makes his way to their meeting place that warm summer evening in Lisbon it becomes clear that there is another reason why Pereira s rather bland idyll cannot last for this is the summer of 1938 and fascism is sweeping across Europe Even his decision to publish nothing but 19th century French classic tales in his arts section is a form of collusion with a dictatorial regime This is a situation in which it is impossible to remain neutral Those who do not defy the system are collaboratorsIn translucent uiet rhythms Tabucchi sets out each careful tiny step that Pereira takes towards following his heart It is not an easy or sudden transformation Pereira needs help along the way from those good people who challenge his complacency who remind him of his better self who give him permission to change Each tiny step the help along the way Heroism as a joint achievement an act of courage by an individual yes but with many contributorsTension is maintained throughout by the repeated use of the phrase Pereira declares as in a testimony which most vividly suggests a police interrogation The temptation to sneak a look at the last page is almost irresistible Everyone should read this Young old and all of those between Everyone
