Die drei Autoren, deren Texte in diesem Buch vereint sind, entdeckten neben den drei bekannten, sozusagen drei verwunschene Zugänge zur Wirklichkeit.
Der eine aus Köln hört auf die Nebengeräusche, wie auf die Morsezeichen die Eier beim Kochen abzugeben scheinen.
Der andere aus München schafft eine mögliche Wirklichkeit und überlässt der Fantasie wie die Wirklichkeit in Wirklichkeit ausgesehen haben mag.
Der dritte aus Berlin ist gekennzeichnet durch einen Satz wie: Der Autor aber ist ein Meister darin Verborgenes aufzudecken. Seien es nun Absurditäten oder potentielle Freuden.

Il collezionista di conchiglie (Italian Edition) by Anthony Doerr

By Anthony Doerr

«Raccogliere conchiglie - ciascuna uno stupore - conoscerne i nomi, lasciarle cadere nel secchiello: di questo period piena los angeles sua vita, di questo traboccava. Certe mattine, muovendosi in line with l. a. laguna, provava l'impulso quasi irresistibile di inchinarsi.» Queste sono otto storie fuori dagli schemi, permeate da un velo di magia e tuttavia profondamente ancorate all'umanità, molto reale, dei personaggi che le abitano. Otto storie che danno forma a una mappatura precisa e avvincente dei diversi paesaggi del mondo e dell'anima, all'interno dei quali le emozioni più severe - il lutto, l. a. perdita, los angeles metamorfosi, l'amore - trovano un'eco nella natura. In queste pagine si allargano fulgide barriere coralline abitate da molluschi velenosi, distant distese africane di erica gigante, selvagge brughiere argentee silenziose, foreste innevate in motionless attesa del disgelo. E lì, adagiate su un implacabile fondale, si dispiegano alcune memorabili vicende umane. Come quella di un cacciatore del Montana costretto a confrontarsi con los angeles «sensibilità acuta e forestiera» della moglie nei confronti degli animali, o quella, luminosa, di Joseph Saleeby, ladruncolo e perdigiorno, in fuga dalle violenze inaudite della guerra civile liberiana, che in terra d'Oregon vorrebbe trovare redenzione e un luogo da poter chiamare casa. Prima dello straordinario successo di Tutta l. a. luce che non vediamo, che lo ha visto trionfare sulla narrativa contemporanea americana degli ultimi anni, Anthony Doerr compose queste eccentriche end up d'autore, in cui ritroviamo il talento di una scrittura lirica e commossa di fronte al mistero dell'esistenza.
