Ferocity : a novel by Nicola Lagioia( Book )

30 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern Italy, the 1980s. On a hot summer's night under a full moon, far from the outlying neighborhoods of a southern Italian metropolis, Clara stumbles naked, dazed, and bloodied down a major highway. When she dies no-one is able to say exactly how or why, but her brother cannot free himself from her memory or from the questions surrounding her death. The more he learns about her life and death, the more he uncovers the moral decay at the core of his family's ascent to social prominence. At once an intimate family saga, a history of an entire region, and a portrait of the moral and political corruption of a whole society, Ferocity is an exhilarating, ambitious, and vivid work of fiction by Italy's foremost literary novelist. -- amazon.com

Giuseppe has red hair, pimples, and an inexhaustible reserve of money in his wallet. Vincenzo is good looking and serious, like any respectable adversary. The third friend is the one telling the story: with caustic precision, this restless narrator records dizzying teenage discoveries, the lazy inertia of the high school years, and the plunge into adulthood. The city is Bari in southern Italy, the time, the 1980s. The era of ideologies has been killed off--the streets are full of optimism; commercial television channels are recalibrating people's desires and aspirations; "something akin to a storm front of madness" is running through Italy's economy. The times are moving fast, and the glow of so much burned money lingers on. And under those ashes lies still more money, smoldering with the desire to be passed from hand to hand. And yet, as the three boys tackle life's challenges, it becomes clear that things are not so simple. Despite their families' evermore luxurious homes, despite the success of their fathers (a businessman obsessed with social climbing, a famous lawyer, and a talented ex-mechanic who has borrowed money from the wrong people), despite their mothers--or stepmothers--who wear out designer heels walking from one shop window to the next, the radar behind these adolescents' eyes detects unexpected vibrations. Nicola Lagioia has written a mature, angry coming-of-age novel. The writing is taut, perceptive, and precise, reaching sparkling heights in a story of friendship, betrayal, and generational conflict, which ultimately takes us to the beginnings of our own time in history, and to the eternal adolescence of a country that is growing old without ever having grown up

Nell'estate del 2001 la redazione di un giornale riceve una notizia che potrebbe trasformarsi nello scoop della stagione: il primo amore di Rodolfo Valentino è ancora vivo. La donna sarebbe l'unica in grado di testimoniare l'educazione sentimentale della prima icona del mondo del cinema. Un giornalista senza prospettive, un regista minacciato dai creditori e una studentessa partono alla caccia di questa leggenda vivente. Percorrono la penisola da Roma a Milano, fino a Napoli e poi a Castellaneta. Un viaggio simile a un film, attraverso un paese ossessionato dall'ansia di apparire

A pochi passi da dove abito, nel quartiere Esquilino, a Roma, il giorno dopo il solstizio d'estate, alle tre del pomeriggio, tornando a casa trovo un vecchio signore gettato per terra, mezzo sepolto dalle buste d'immondizia, tra rifiuti alimentari ed escrementi.

"A violent city, contained in a worse world.

Överflödet vet inga gränser, tre tonåringar strövar omkring på Baris gator och lever ett bekymmerslöst liv. Den kommersiella televisionen gestaltar en framtid av obegränsade njutningar. En ny värld växer fram och en hel nation blir en drömfabrik. När den hårt arbetande fadern som är besatt av att stiga i den sociala hierarkin plötsligt befinner sig i den osynliga maktens finrum blir konsekvenserna helt andra än de som han och alla andra hade föreställt sig. Spänningarna i tillvaron tvingar dem att ifrågasätta allt och gradvis dras de in i ett mörker som kommer att förändra dem för alltid. Det var först då som jag började inse att det någon gång i det förflutna måste ha utspelat sig en katastrof av jättelika dimensioner. En osynlig kollision, ett stumt ras, ett händelselöst trauma. Och det verkliga problemet var den krater som smällen hade orsakat i vårt inre. Allt kommer tillbaka är en bländande vacker roman om ett decennium som förändrade världen i grunden. [Publit]
