"Well-to-do, sophisticated couple, Elsa and Michele, have a 20 year-old daughter, Alice, and enough money for Elsa to leave her job and fulfill an old dream of studying art history. After she graduates, however, their lives change. Michele confesses he hasn't worked in two months and was fired by the company he founded years ago. Elsa overcomes her initial shock by pouring extra energy into facing the crisis while Michele, exhausted by an unsuccessful job hunt, lets himself go, alternating between vivacity and apathy. The growing distance between them eventually leads to a break-up. Only when they part will they realize that they risk losing their most precious possession: the love that binds them."--Original container

Momenti di trascurabile infelicità by Francesco Piccolo( Book )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in Italian and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Possono esistere felicità trascurabili? Come chiamare quei piaceri intensi e volatili che punteggiano le nostre giornate, accendendone i minuti come fiammiferi nel buio? Sei in coda al supermercato in attesa del tuo turno, magari sei bloccato nel traffico, oppure aspetti che la tua ragazza esca dal camerino di un negozio d'abbigliamento. Quando all'improvviso la realtà intorno a te sembra convergere in un solo punto, e lo fa brillare. E allora capisci di averne appena incontrato uno. I momenti di trascurabile felicità funzionano così: possono annidarsi ovunque, pronti a pioverti in testa e farti aprire gli occhi su qualcosa che fino a un attimo prima non avevi considerato. Per farti scoprire, ad esempio, quant'è preziosa quella manciata di giorni d'agosto in cui tutti vanno in vacanza e tu rimani da solo in città. Quale interesse morboso ti spinge a chiuderti a chiave nei bagni delle case in cui non sei mai stato e curiosare su tutti i prodotti che usano. A metà strada tra "Mi ricordo" di Perec e le implacabili leggi di Murphy, Francesco Piccolo mette a nudo i piaceri più inconfessabili, i tic, le debolezze con le quali tutti noi dobbiamo fare i conti. Pagina dopo pagina, momento dopo momento, si finisce col venire travolti da un'ondata di divertimento, intelligenza e stupore. L'autore raccoglie, cataloga e fa sue le mille epifanie che sbocciano a ogni angolo di strada. Perché solo riducendo a spicchi la realtà si riesce ad afferrare per la coda il senso profondo della vita

Agata lavora in una libreria, il suo piccolo mondo dove naviga nella tranquillità, quando due eventi sconvolgono la sua vita e la costringono ad uscire dal guscio per affrontare il mondo.

La protagonista così inizia una ricerca verso una verità che farà conoscere fra loro i singoli personaggi, a cui si aggiunge il terzo "fratellastro", Romeo, in una serie di situazioni fra il tragico e il comico.
