L'impero e il vuoto
Tutti i formati dell'opera
C'è tutto il mondo di Arundhati Roy in queste pagine: ci sono i temi della sua militanza in difesa dei diritti civili, la polemica contro la politica militare di Bush, le riflessioni sul terrorismo, la guerra atomica e i rapporti tra Oriente e Occidente. Ma non solo. Perché in questa lunga e intensa intervista, la narratrice indiana si svela e parla anche di sé, della sua vicenda umana e famigliare segnata dall'assenza della figura paterna, e poi dei suoi studi, dei viaggi, del successo mondiale dei suoi libri. Un breve e fulmineo ritratto, il profilo unico di una protagonista della letteratura contemporanea.

This is what the kids call a vibe-check kinda book. You learn less about the issues discussed (this is a book of interviews) than an approach to them, an orientation: to stand against power; to recognize the idiosyncrasies of 'the West'; to celebrate the dignity of independence; to see the interconn Leggi tutto
I was highly impressed by the interviews of Arundhati Roy, whose answers are always thought-provoking, honest (if one-sided), eloquent and erudite in nature. At the same time, like any activist of any side, she tends to be one-sided, and rarely gives you the full view and events leading to a particul Leggi tutto

An excellent overview of Roy's sociopolitical worldview. The interviews wrap you in the warmth of a revolutionary woman in the midst of an India taking a turn for the fascist.
A little simplistic, but a great introduction to Roy’s work. Hopefully it inspires readers to check out the other texts mentioned within. I’m glad I read this before checking out The God of Small Things, it provides some important context.
To say that Arundhati Roy is brilliant, is an understatement. She marries intellect with pithy eloquence, saying so much in a few words. It looks like Ms Roy has an opinion on everything: dams in India; corporate takeover of state responsibilities in India; sectarian politics in India; Bush and his
The Checkbook and the Cruise Missile, conversations with Arundhati Roy, interviews by David Barsamiam (pp 157). Roy is an Indian social commentator, journalist, and author. This book is a series of interviews of her thoughts about India, America, and the world. Rather than make what would be a pathe Leggi tutto
Arundhati Roy is a really amazing writer and organizer. She is among a few outspoken writers that i feel presents both a well researched, thoughtful and not entirely hopeless view of our history and our current world. This interview doesn't really do that though, not sure if she just doesn't or is n Leggi tutto
I think one of the most important points in this book that I came away with was Roy's assertion that the 'farther away' decision making takes place in a community or a country (i.e. on a higher bureaucratic level), the more dehumanized the process becomes - leading to the neglect of the people the d Leggi tutto
A book that will make you question all you see, hear, and think: your beliefs, the pre-digested rot you are fed by most media, ideas you've inculcated from your environment, your teachers, everything! Doubly deadly if you're Indian.
