Con "Il piatto piange" fa la sua comparsa nella letteratura italiana un piccolo paese di frontiera, Luino, con il suo profumo di lago e di boschi, con la sua umanità truffaldina, fatta di giocatori, di piccoli ladri, di prostitute e di funzionari dello stato fascista. Il romanzo è infatti ambientato negli anni '30, e la Luino di Chiara è rappresentativa dell'atmosfera - fatta di apparente rispettabilità e di reale inquietudine e irregolarità - delle città di provincia dell'Italia di allora. Protagonisti, annoiati e grotteschi, del romanzo sono un gruppo di giovani, che passano il loro tempo tra il gioco d'azzardo e le case d'appuntamento, fra gli uffici e i boschi attorno alla cittadina, ombrosi e accoglienti. Persone modeste, che, incapaci di evadere dal loro paese di origine, sfuggono così alla retorica altisonante dell'epoca, ma che sono destinate ad affrontare in modo più o meno tragico nel corso della seconda guerra mondiale eventi più grandi di loro (bol.it)
