Mr. Johnson, le monsieur du dessus, a toujours les lacets défaits et des vestes trouées. Pourtant, c'est un violoniste célèbre qui vit dans le plus bel appartement de l'immeuble, avec vue sur la mer. Anna, la voisine du dessous, partage un petit entresol obscur avec sa fille, taille ses robes dans de vieilles nappes et fait des ménages. Pourtant, elle cache dans ses tiroirs des dessous coquins et des rêves inavoués. Ces deux-là, plus tout jeunes, débordants de désirs inassouvis, étaient faits pour se rencontrer. Dans les escaliers, où montent et descendent des voisins occupés par une farouche quête du bonheur, se tricotent à tous les étages situations rocambolesques, amours compliquées, jalousies absurdes. Mais n'est-ce pas là la clef de voûte de toute vie ? Observatrice indiscrète, pourfendeuse de la normalité, Milena Agus fait la chronique de ce microcosme dans lequel souffle un vent délicieusement frondeur

Terre promesse by Milena Agus( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in Italian and French and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ciascuno di noi ha la sua terra promessa, anzi, le sue terre promesse, perché non c'è momento della nostra vita che non guardi a quel vago avvenir che in mente aveva, prendendo in prestito le parole del poeta tutelare di questo romanzo. Ma vale la pena di continuare a cercarle? Questa è la domanda che Milena Agus si pone, inseguendo le terre promesse di tre generazioni di una famiglia sarda, dalla madre che sogna il matrimonio della figlia con un ricco possidente, alla figlia che sogna di essere amata da un uomo sempre sfuggente, al nipote che si trasferisce in America, già terra promessa dell'Italia povera, rincorrendo la musica. Tutti procedono da una terra promessa all'altra, illusi e delusi, finché, un giorno, potrebbero forse decidere di fermarsi e concludere li quel viaggio sfinente. In questo nuovo libro Milena Agus ci porta, scortati dal suo sguardo lucido e amoroso, dentro ai nostri sogni più segreti, nell'illusione-delusione della vita, con delicata maestria e sortilegio

In einem heruntergekommenen Viertel der Hafenstadt Cagliari leben in einem einst prachtvollen Palazzo ein alter amerikanischer Violinist, eine Studentin (die Erzählerin der Geschichte) und die herzkranke Anna mit ihrer Tochter Natascia. Anna ist arm und hat 3 Putz-Jobs, nun benötigt Mr. Johnson vom 3. Stock auch eine Haushaltshilfe, weil seine Frau ihn verlassen hat. "Eigentlich eine traurige Hausgemeinschaft, wenn nicht auf einmal die Liebe ins Spiel käme. Anna verliebt sich in den Geiger, die Studentin in dessen Sohn - und auch wenn das Leben andere Pläne hat, so zeigt Milena Agus doch, was ein bisschen Hoffnung ausmachen kann. Wie in den Vorgängerbänden erzählt die Autorin einfühlsam und poetisch. Überall möglich" (U. Horak-Mayr zum Buch, ID-A 15/13). Nach 3 früheren Hörbüchern bei Hoffmann und Campe (vgl. zuletzt "Die Gräfin der Lüfte", IN 12/10) erschien dieses 4. Hörbuch von Milena Agus bei Jumbo/GoyaLiT und einer 4. Sprecherin. Katja Danowski intoniert die etwas verrückten Figuren brillant und filmreif, Bilder im Kopf inklusive
