Un borghese piccolo piccolo by Vincenzo Cerami( Book )

60 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Very Normal Man is the first English translation of Vincenzo Cerami's first and most famous novel, Un borghese piccolo piccolo. The complex word play of the Italian title is untranslatable in English; it means literally a very little, very middle-class man. Little he may be, but Giovanni Vivaldi, to paraphrase Italo Calvino's words, is a victim who is also a monster. This is a revenge story whose protagonist tortures his enemy with the same attention to detail he'd apply to the files he's slogged over for half a lifetime in the office for pensions. And with the same detachment. This classic caught the attention of the greatest figures of the day on the Italian literary scene for its unique amalgam of the storyteller's gifts, its expose of society's subterranean forces, and its black (as well as not so dark) humour

L'expérience du mensonge serait-elle obligatoire pour révéler la vérité?

La lepre by Vincenzo Cerami( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La storia, o meglio, la favola, di Cerami è semplice, lineare: in un lebbrosario, secondo una legge promulgata in Francia e dall'autore estesa all'Italia, viene rinchiusa una giovane prostituta, Bianca Maria, affetta dalla nuova peste dell'epoca, la sifilide. Secondo la sentenza emessa dai giudici che l'hanno condannata alla reclusione perpetua, Bianca Maria 'è molto pericolosa'. In realtà, Bianca Maria è una vittima, diciamo così, dell'amore. La scrittura di Cerami non ha nulla di dialettale. Ciò non toglie che si avverta continuamente come il sottofondo rude e sapido di una voce evocatrice, di un luogo preciso, cioè Roma o meglio quella parte del Lazio, ai tempi degli Stati della Chiesa, selvaggia e disabitata, che confina con la più gentile e prospera Campania. La scrittura della 'Lepre' aderisce a quei paesaggi di briganti e di malaria come un abito cucito addosso al corpo che se ne riveste. Ma bisogna dire, a questo punto, che la sifilitica e lebbrosa Bianca Maria e, in misura minore, il suo amante, il protofisico Tommaso, non sono 'figure di paesaggio' ma personaggi drammatici e commoventi anche perché emblematici non soltanto del manzoniano Seicento ma soprattutto, sia pure in maniera indiretta, del nostro tempo
