Forum From the Archives: Jennifer Egan and Isabel Wilkerson

KQED's Forum

In this special holiday edition of Forum, we've gone back into our archives to two interviews that Michael Krasny, our recently retired host, did in 2011. They showcase his depth and love of literature as he speaks with the winners of that year's National Book Critics Circle Award, Jennifer Egan and Isabel Wilkerson. Egan's novel "A Visit From the Goon Squad," traipses through San Francisco and beyond. Wilkerson's "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story Of America's Great Migration" reframed the origins of modern America.

"Il tempo è un bastardo", di Jennifer Egan

Zona Lettura. Libri da leggere

Recensione di "Il tempo è un bastardo", di Jennifer Egan, minimum fax, 2011.Bennie è un ex musicista punk diventato discografico di successo, scopritore di talenti e invischiato da sempre in notevoli problemi famigliari e lavorativi, senza contare le sue dipendenze.Sasha è una ragazza che a diciassette anni scappa di casa, scompare dalla vita dei suoi famigliari per dimenticare un’adolescenza piena di guai, arresti per taccheggio, visite dallo psicoterapeuta, tentativi di suicidio e amicizie poco raccomandabili.Questi e molti altri personaggi, le cui vite sono intrecciate fra loro e vengono rivelate poco alla volta in ogni capitolo, concorrono a creare un quadro generale di ansia e crisi propria di chi vive il mondo dello spettacolo, della musica e del cinema. Tramite una visione globale di questi vissuti, ne ricaviamo la frenesia, la paranoia e l’alienazione di donne e uomini fragili, soli, fantasmi del proprio passato, dimenticati da chi frequentava il loro stesso ambiente. Incarnano loro stessi il disagio del mondo che rappresentano, i rimpianti e le aspettative deluse, le aspirazioni di persone che ce l’hanno fatta, quelle di chi non ce l’ha fatta per un pelo, e quelle di chi ha perso per strada il senso dei traguardi raggiunti. Tutto questo in un continuo ripercorrere avanti e indietro il tempo, che è stato maledetto da queste persone che l’hanno vissuto. Perché, in poche parole: il tempo è un bastardo.Contattami anche tu per commenti, idee e proposte: woozingstar@gmail.comProfilo Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/18769234-ludovicaMissaggio di Gabriele TaorminaMusica: Acoustic Blues e Saloon Rag, di Jason Shaw, da https://audionautix.comRendezvous, di Shane Ivers, da https://www.silvermansound.com Foto di Ricardo Esquivel, da https://www.pexels.com
