The missing head of Damasceno Monteiro by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

79 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antonio Tabucchi's new novel is a thriller, but one with a rare intellectual depth. The Missing Head of Damasceno Monteiro reflects on current socia1 issues - crime, the difficu1ties facing ethnic minorities and those on the margins of society, police corruption and the courts - both of the law and of public opinion." "A gypsy discovers a headless body; Firmino, a young journalist who writes for a tabloid newspaper, takes up the case; the headless corpse is that of Damasceno Monteiro - who, having stumbled on a drug smuggling ring at his work, has stolen a shipment of heroin; and the police are suppressing evidence."--BOOK JACKET

The edge of the horizon by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

78 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Late on night, the body of a young man is delivered to the morgue of an Italian town. The next day's newspapers report that he was killed in a police raid, and that went by the obviously false name "Carlo Nobodi." Spino, the morgue attendant on duty at the time, becomes obsessed with tracing the identity of the corpse. "Why do you want to know about him?" asks a local priest. "Because he is dead and I'm alive," replies Spino. In this spare yet densely packed cautionary tale, Tabucchi reminds us that it is impossible to reach the edge of the horizon since it always recedes before us, but suggests that some people "carry the horizon with them in their eyes

Dreams of dreams : and, the last three days of Fernando Pessoa by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

48 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Dreams of Dreams, a delightful variation on exemplary "lives," Antonio Tabucchi imagines the dreams of twenty artists he has loved, among them Ovid and Rimbaud, Chekhov and Debussy, Goya and Garcia Lorca." "The Last Three Days of Fernando Pessoa finds the poet on his deathbed, where he is visited by his heteronyms, the poets he invented, whose poetry and voices invented him. Antonio Tabucchi, scholar and Italian translator of Pessoa's work, here pronounces a farewell to a man who was several of the greatest writers of the twentieth century."--Jacket

Piccoli equivoci senza importanza by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

99 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una Toscana secreta y embrujada, una estación de la Riviera, una Lisboa baudelairliana, un rally de coches de época, un perseguidor implacable de aire distinguido en un tren de Bombay a Madrás. Los cuentos de Tabucchi parecen, en una primera lectura, aventuras existenciales, retratos de viajeros irónicos y desesperados. Pero la aparente sintonía entre lo real y lo narrado se transforma de golpe en turbación y desconcierto. A modo de oblicuos "cuentos filosóficos", las historias de Tabucchi se convierten en una reflexión en torno al azar y al riesgo de escoger, una tentativa de observar los intersticios que atraviesan el tejido de la existencia

Piazza d'Italia : favola popolare in tre tempi, un epilogo e un'appendice by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

69 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

?L{u2019}unica cosa che Garibaldo non riusciva a comprendere della vita, era la morte? Un borgo toscano nelle paludi, vicino al mare. Una famiglia di anarchici, ribelli per temperamento e tradizione, si incarna, nell{u2019}arco di tre generazioni, in tre personaggi dai nomi emblematici {u2212} Garibaldo, Quarto e Volturno {u2212} e nelle donne combattive e coraggiose che li affiancano. È il primo Tabucchi, ma vi sono già tutti gli elementi delle sue opere più mature: il doppio, il gusto degli equivoci, la fascinazione epica, la tensione morale, da Il gioco del rovescio a Sostiene Pereira. In queste pagine, l{u2019}autore tratteggia con humour e delicata malinconia un mondo contadino, arcaico, ormai scomparso, e ricostruisce con fantasiose trovate un{u2019}antistoria d{u2019}Italia dalla parte dei perdenti, una fiaba popolare pervasa dal senso, arcano ma non oscuro, della fragilità della vita. ?Questo libro è memoria, una memoria lunga che si oppone alla memoria breve dei mass media. Io ho sempre creduto nella letteratura come memoria.? Antonio Tabucchi" --P. 4 of Cover

Si sta facendo sempre più tardi : romanzo in forma di lettere by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

32 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in Italian and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dix-sept lettres plus une, dix-sept narrateurs masculins et autant d'univers singuliers qui jettent des ponts entre eux pour finir par construire un vertigineux roman de l'amour impossible. Un roman d'amour nourri de principe de relativité, où même les allusions littéraires semblent les restes d'un naufrage, et qui est aussi, on le devine, une confession cubiste de l'auteur. Rien n'y est réel ou autobiographique, mais tout y est vrai, car transposé, défiguré, universalisé

22 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in Italian and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un'estate torrida in una vecchia casa in Toscana. Qui Tristano vive la sua lunga agonia: una cancrena gli divora la gamba, i dolori sono lancinanti e la malattia si estende a tutto il corpo. Lo assiste la vecchia Frau, la stessa che da bambino gli raccontava fiabe e poesie in tedesco, affinche' imparasse la lingua. In uno stato allucinatorio, Tristano vecchio e incattivito, racconta di se' ad uno scrittore perche' sia testimone della sua agonia e dei ricordi di una vita. Fantasmi di donne amate si sovrappongono nel delirio e poi la guerra, combattuta in Grecia, la scelta della libertà' e della Resistenza. Alla fine della vita tutto appare uguale a se stesso, un incubo che tutto sovrasta e tutto circonda
For Isabel : a mandala by Antonio Tabucchi( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A metaphysical detective story about love and existence. When Tadeus sets out to find Isabel, his former love, he soon finds himself on a metaphysical journey across the world, one that calls into question the meaning of time and existence and the power of words. Isabel disappeared many years ago. Tadeus Slowacki, a Polish writer, her former friend and lover, has come back to Lisbon to learn of her whereabouts. Rumors abound: Isabel died in prison under Salazar's regime, or perhaps wasn't arrested at all. As Tadeus interviews one old acquaintance of hers after the next, a chameleon-like portrait of a young, ideological woman emerges, ultimately bringing Tadeus on a metaphysical journey across the continent. Constructed in the form of a mandala, For Isabel is the spiraling search for an enigma, an investigation into time and existence, the power of words, and the limits of the senses. In this posthumous work Tabucchi creates an ingenious narration, tracing circles around a lost woman and the ultimate inaccessible truth
