Momenti di trascurabile felicità by Francesco Piccolo ( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in Italian and held by 93 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
La separazione del maschio by Francesco Piccolo ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Italian and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Il protagonista di questo libro, il Maschio, è un padre capace di tenerezza e di attenzione, è un marito allegro e appassionato. Ma ha molte altre donne. Relazioni di lunga durata, in cui il sesso è il veicolo primario attraverso il quale passano la comunicazione, l'affetto, la curiosità, la scoperta dell'altro. Il sesso è un pensiero costante, un'ossessione e una consuetudine, un modo per entrare in contatto con il mondo esterno. Più ancora della seduzione e della conquista, più dell'amore che in forme diverse è parte fondamentale di ciascuna di queste relazioni. È questa la separazione del maschio, dunque. Dove per maschio s'intende davvero, genericamente, il maschio di uomo nell'apice dell'età riproduttiva, in un ambiente circostante quanto mai generoso di sollecitazioni e stimoli. E per separazione s'intendono due cose: quella, letterale, dalla moglie, a cui condurrà fatalmente il percorso del libro; e quella, fisica e metaforica, che divide all'interno dello stesso uomo il padre dal marito e dall'amante. Quasi che fosse impossibile conciliare gli impulsi e i sentimenti, quasi che l'unica strada per tenere tutto insieme fosse una rigida compartimentazione, cioè: vivere molte vite
