Il peso di Dio : il Vangelo di Lenny Belardo by Paolo Sorrentino( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I discorsi, le massime, le preghiere, le iperboli di papa Belardo e del cardinale Voiello concentrati in uno smagliante, sovversivo "Vangelo apocrifo". Dalle molte ore di narrazione di "The Young Pope", che racconta il cammino di Lenny Belardo, eletto papa Pio XIII, Paolo Sorrentino ha estratto il filo musicale di un libro autentico, da gustare in ogni pagina. In un testo breve, un mondo immenso. Parole del giovane papa, del suo segretario di Stato e dei più stretti comprimari. Parole che fanno ridere e pensare. A volte, mettono i brividi. Una sorpresa per chi ha già visto la serie TV, un meditato invito per tutti". Quel lunghissimo viaggio che è stato The Young Pope - ha scritto Paolo Sorrentino - ruota intorno a una domanda vertiginosa, che può toccare nel profondo ciascuno di noi: chi è Dio? Un interrogativo che l'autore si pone anche con ironia, "per non rischiare certe goffaggini". Ma sempre con la più aperta curiosità e con insaziabile interesse. La domanda ne porta a sua volta un'altra: che vuol dire dare peso a Dio? La risposta sta a chi legge."-- cover summary (back cover and front cover flap)

La grande bellezza by Paolo Sorrentino( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in Italian and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La grande bellezza è una sceneggiatura scritta con la stessa verve e fantasia che Sorrentino aveva dimostrato nel suo primo romanzo, Hanno tutti ragione, rivelazione del 2010, e nella sceneggiatura di This Must Be the Place, scritta a quattro mani con Umberto Contarello, David di Donatello per la migliore sceneggiatura nel 2012. Il protagonista, Jep Gambardella, è un giornalista acclamato e richiesto, affascinante sciupafemmine. Autore quarant'anni prima del romanzo L'apparato umano, Jep era stato osannato dalla critica e definito la nuova promessa della letteratura contemporanea. Ma gli anni passano e Gambardella non ha pubblicato altro non riuscendo a superare il blocco della pagina bianca. Per mascherare il suo fallimento letterario si erge ad arbiter elegantiarum apparentemente cinico e disilluso di una Roma sguaiata, tra feste, balli e improbabili performances. Finché un giorno
