Radio days by Woody Allen( Visual )

9 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grazie alla voce narrante di Joe, la narrazione introduce lo spettatore a Rockaway, vicino Brooklyn, tra la fine degli anni Trenta e l'inizio degli anni Quaranta. Joe è un bambino che vive in una singolare famiglia ebrea che fa accompagnare ogni sua azione, ogni più piccolo avvenimento dai programmi radiofonici Joe, che ha nel 'Vendicatore mascherato' il suo idolo, conduce un'esistenza non troppo agiata: nella stessa abitazione convive tutta la famiglia della madre, formata, oltre dai genitori del bambino (un padre di cui non si conosce la professione e una madre che discute con il marito su qualunque cosa, anche sulla grandezza degli oceani), dallo zio Abe (soggetto di scarsa personalità che porta ogni giorno a casa una gran quantità di pesce fresco), dalla moglie Ceil (che sogna una vita lussuosa ma si trova ogni giorno a dover pulire il pesce che il marito porta a casa), dall'altra zia Bea (che sogna il grande amore), dalla cugina Ruth (che ascolta le telefonate dei vicini) e dai grotteschi nonni. Parallelamente si assiste alla vita non meno singolare delle stars della radio. Sally è una sigaraia che decide di fare carriera a tutti i costi: un giorno assiste all'omicidio del padrone del night in cui lavora, ma il killer, invece di ucciderla, l'aiuta tramite un cugino mafioso ad entrare nel mondo dello spettacolo. I giorni si susseguono, e così anche i ricordi legati alle canzoni trasmesse alla radio: scoppia la Guerra e l'annuncio è dato radiofonicamente, così come la terribile notizia della morte di una bambina rimasta intrappolata in un pozzo, fino ad arrivare al Capodanno del 1944, durante il quale, al King Cole Room, un locale alla moda, confluiscono tutti i nomi famosi della radio, compresa Sally che nel frattempo ha fatto carriera, mentre a casa di Joe la famiglia è collegata alla serata tramite l'apprezzata scatola parlante
