Su una luminosissima spiaggia Rosemary incontra un gruppo di ricchi espatriati americani in giro per l'Europa, dediti a divertirsi e a far bisboccia da mattina a sera, tra i quali spiccano Dick Diver, un brillante psichiatra, e sua moglie Nicole Warren. In quella turbinante e continua ebbrezza, Dick, uomo affascinante e spigliato, sembra essere una mosca bianca, una figura magnetica capace di esercitare un fascino irresistibile su Rosemary, che ne coglie subito la diversità e inizia a provare una forte attrazione per lui. La ragazza si innamorerà, in modo diverso e per sempre, di entrambi i coniugi belli e dannati, solidali in un segreto dolore, espatriati di lusso nella Francia degli anni Venti. Ma ben presto questo mondo inizierà a mostrare le sue ombre. Introduzione di Mauro Conti e Romina Bicicchi.

When Fitzgerald finished this gem, he was stunned by the poor reviews it received. I honestly think it's a profoundly more true and powerful book than Gatsby ever will be. His effortless and viceral writing tells a story of such complex and accurate human relationships, I often find myself reflectin Leggi tutto
How is one to feel about a protagonist who frequently displays signs of elitism, sexism, bigotry and homophobia, finds himself worryingly attracted to young girls, has no goal in life except to make himself useful to damsels in distress, and drinks away his career and marriage, ending up a mere shad Leggi tutto

Tender Is the Night is a flowery derision of the beautiful people’s world and a bitter tale of ruination. There are man and wife living in comfort and luxury… She is enigmatic and beautiful… She sat in the car, her lovely face set, controlled, her eyes brave and watchful, looking straight ahead toward Leggi tutto
This book is so pointless, you could read the chapters in random order and probably not feel like you'd missed much. This marks my second and final attempt to read it. I almost made it to the halfway point this time. If you loved The Great Gatsby , don't get your hopes up for this one to be anything Leggi tutto
I mean…it begins badly, tails off a bit in the middle, and the less said about the ending the better. Occasionally, there are books that leave you at a loss as to how to dismiss them. Reading this I kept thinking of a line from Stoppard's The Real Thing : ‘There’s something scary about stupidity made Leggi tutto
We first meet Dick and Nicole Diver on the beach in the south of France. They are a golden couple, beautiful and rich. All those around them are slightly in awe, especially Rosemary Hoyt, a very young actress who immediately convinces herself she’s fallen in love with Dick. The Divers epitomise cool Leggi tutto
