Un paese di contadini nel cuore delle Alpi vive un lungo inverno sotto la minaccia di una valanga. Sul bianco di una neve che sembra voler cancellare ogni cosa, si stagliano con vivezza cinematografica i protagonisti di una storia fatta di paure ed epifanie collettive, di conflitti tra valori arcaici e moderni, ma anche di orecchi tesi nella notte ad ascoltare gli scricchiolii delle montagne e desideri amorosi appagati in modo più o meno furtivo, tra incanti e disillusioni. La valanga è lì, aggrappata alla montagna, e non smette di nevicare. La gente resiste, non vuole andarsene, non vuole abbandonare i morti delle generazioni passate, né le bestie, né le case, finché non bisognerà sfollare per decreto governativo. E allora la piccola comunità alpestre si disperde ed è un'intera epoca che finisce. Alcuni, come Gionata (il giovane protagonista narratore), faranno esperienza della città e ritorneranno al paese solo per prendersi le loro poche cose. A quarant'anni dalla stesura, la "Valanga" di Giovanni Orelli non ha perso niente del suo candore e della sua freschezza e ci tiene ancora con il fiato sospeso

Die Regeln sind bekannt: Wer hat, dem wird gegeben. Jeder für sich, und der Markt gegen alle. Am Ende rette sich, wer kann. Das Spielfeld ist die Schweiz. Giovanni Orelli führt den Leser durch das reiche, wunderschöne, perfekt organisierte Land, und im Ritual des Spiels um Geld, Besitz und Einfluss zeigt er das feine, festgefügte Netz zwischen Gestern und Heute, zwischen hochorganisierter Militärhierarchie und wohldurchdachter Finanzstrategie. Die Metapher des Würfelspiels durchzieht den ganzen Roman, er führt in 20 Etappen in die schönsten und bedeutendsten Städte, an Seen und Berge, der Duft
