Letture in inglese con Rosemary Perry Vine

I libri sono stati una preziosa compagnia in questi mesi di lockdown: ricominciamo a leggerli insieme, al Circolo, dal vivo. E, come da tradizione anglofona, leggiamoli in lingua originale.

Oggi tocca a Evening in Paradise: More Stories di Lucia Berlin.
In 2015, Farrar, Straus and Giroux published A Manual for Cleaning Women, a posthumous story collection by a relatively unknown writer, to wild, widespread acclaim. It was a New York Times bestseller; the papers Book Review named it one of the Ten Best Books of 2015; and NPR, Time, Entertainment WeeklyThe GuardianThe Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and other outlets gave the book rave reviews.
The book’s author, Lucia Berlin, earned comparisons to Raymond Carver, Grace Paley, Alice Munro, and Anton Chekhov. Evening in Paradise is a careful selection from Berlins remaining stories twenty-two gems that showcase the gritty glamour that made readers fall in love with her. From Texas to Chile, Mexico to New York City, Berlin finds beauty in the darkest places and darkness in the seemingly pristine. Evening in Paradise is an essential piece of Berlins oeuvre, a jewel-box follow-up for new and old fans.
