Italy 1960. In the centre of Naples there is a cluster of alleys known as Montedidio - God's Mountain. There, a thirteen year old boy keeps a secret diary. His life is about to change; his world about to open. He works at a carpentary shop and befriends Rafaniello, a Jewish refugee who is, within his hump, said to be sprouting wings. Not quite yet a man, the boy struggles to make a place for himself in an adult world. But from the height of a rooftop terrace - with the help of Rafaniello, a boomerang, and a new tender relationship with his neighbour Maria - anything seems possible

Just after World War II, a young orphan living in Naples comes under the protection of Don Gaetano, the superintendent of an apartment building. He is a generous man and is very attached to the boy, telling him about the war and the liberation of the city by the Neapolitans. He teaches him to play cards, shows him how to do odd jobs for the tenants, and even initiates him into the world of sex by sending him one evening to a widow who lives in the building. But Don Gaetano possesses another gift as well: he knows how to read people's thoughts and guesses correctly that his young friend is haunted by the image of a girl he noticed by chance behind a window during a soccer match. Years later, when the girl returns, the orphan will need Don Gaetano's help more than ever
Three horses by Erri De Luca( Book )

38 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in Italian and English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somewhere along the coastline of Italy, a man passes his days in solitude and silence, tending a garden and reading books of travel and adventure. Through these simple routines he seeks to quiet the painful memories of the past: a life on the run from Argentina's Dirty War; a young bride "disappeared" by the military; a terrifying escape through the wilds of Patagonia." "Yet everywhere he turns new life is pulsing, ready to awaken his senses, like the force that drives his fruit trees into bloom. A woman of the world reintroduces him to love. An African day laborer teaches him the meaning of gratitude." "In this narrative, every acute observation, every nuance, becomes a means of salvation."--Jacket
Il peso della farfalla by Erri De Luca( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in Italian and English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il re dei camosci è un animale ormai stanco. Solitario e orgoglioso, da anni ha imposto al branco la sua supremazia. Forse è giunto il tempo che le sue corna si arrendano a quelle di un figlio più deciso. E novembre, tempo di duelli: è il tempo delle femmine. Dalla valle sale l'odore dell'uomo, dell'assassino di sua madre. Anche l'uomo, quell'uomo, era in là negli anni, e gran parte della sua vita era passata a cacciare di frodo le bestie in montagna. E anche quell'uomo porta, impropriamente, il nome di re dei camosci - per quanti ne aveva uccisi. Ha una Trecento magnum e una pallottola da undici grammi: non lasciava mai la bestia ferita, l'abbatteva con un solo colpo. Erri De Luca spia l'imminenza dello scontro, di un duello che sembra contenere tutti i duelli. Lo fa entrando in due solitudini diverse: quella del grande camoscio fermo sotto l'immensa e protettiva volta del cielo e quella del cacciatore, del ladro di bestiame, che non ha mai avuto una vera storia da raccontare per rapire l'attenzione delle donne, per vincere la sua battaglia con gli altri uomini. In ogni specie sono i solitari a tentare esperienze nuove, dice De Luca. E qui si racconta, per l'appunto, di questi due animali che si fronteggiano da una distanza sempre meno sensibile, fino alla pietà di un abbraccio mortale

«En el nombre del padre»: inaugura la señal de la cruz. En el nombre de la madre seinaugura la vida.«La adolescencia de Miriàm/María finaliza de una hora a otra. Un anuncio le pone un hijo en el regazo. Aquí tenemos la historia de una joven, obrera de la divinidad, narrada por ella misma. Aquí tenemos el amor desmesurado de Iosef por la esposa prometida y entregada a algo muy distinto. Miriàm/María, judía de Galilea, arrolla toda costumbre y toda ley. Llevará a cabo su tarea pariendo sola en un establo. Ha callado. Aquí se narra su gravidez arriesgada, el viaje y la perfecta eclosión de su regazo. La historia sigue siendo misteriosa y sagrada, pero con las cuerdas vocales de una madre yunque, fábrica de chispazos.»Erri de Luca
Non ora, non qui by Erri De Luca( Book )

73 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Questo breve e intenso primo libro di Erri De Luca porta già impressi in ogni frase - mi sembra - i segni di un vero scrittore: un tono di voce che appena si coglie diventa inconfondibile, e la integrità di uno sguardo che sa mettere nel giusto fuoco i pensieri e i sentimenti. Qui la memoria non è consolazione, ma è un dramma, e il tempo gioca un suo gioco crudele stabilendo distanze insormontabili tra chi narra e la materia del proprio racconto. Una luce bianca e densa come quella che filtra da nuvole alte bagna queste pagine ..."

A dieci anni l'età si scrive per la prima volta con due cifre. È un salto in alto, in lungo e in largo, ma il corpo resta scarso di statura mentre la testa si precipita avanti. D'estate si concentra una fretta di crescere. Un uomo, cinquant'anni dopo, torna coi pensieri su una spiaggia dove gli accadde il necessario e pure l'abbondante. Le sue mani di allora, capaci di nuoto e non di difesa, imparano lo stupore del verbo mantenere, che è tenere per mano

De ses gros cahiers où il a noté pêle-mêle des phrases relevées au cours de ses lectures (Mann, Zweig, Defoe, l'Ancien Testament), De Luca en a extrait certaines qui servent de point d'appui (l'"alzaia" est un cordage qui sert à tirer des péniches) à sa réflexion sur la politique, l'histoire, la Bible
Storia di Irene by Erri De Luca( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un triptico luminoso que nos recuerda que Erri De Luca es uno de los grandesescritores de la literatura universal.Este triptico luminoso empieza con una fabula sin moraleja que podria incluirse en cualquierrecopilacion de mitos griegos. El personaje principal, Irene, tiene el misterio de las criaturasmagicas, y teje un hilo narrativo que se entremezcla con la voz del narrador, que mece allector en la leyenda. Las dos historias que la siguen son conmovedores relatos sobre la naturalezadel ser humano, capaz de mostrar amistad y dignidad en circunstancias adversas,contados con el singular lenguaje evocador y muy poetico que ha hecho a Erri De Lucacelebre en todo el mundo.
