Le educate s’ébranla, glissant sur des barres parallèles qui s’étiraient vers l’extrême sud.

Il songea qu’il n’avait plus l. a. strength de dessiner ce geste, d’élancer ses bras ouverts vers l’ami, de décocher un appel qui, du sein de l. a. détresse, exhibât l. a. violence de son désir.

Download Der Tag, an dem ein Wal durch London schwamm (German by Selja Ahava,Stefan Moster PDF

By Selja Ahava,Stefan Moster

Ein zauberhafter Roman über die Kraft der Wörter und der Fantasie

»Wäre es möglich, Augenblicke einzufrieren, würde ich diesen in eine Plastikdose legen. Dann könnte guy den wintry weather über davon zehren.« Als es Anna immer weniger gelingt, ihre Erinnerungen festzuhalten, und ihr Gedächtnis langsam unzuverlässiger wird, klammert sie sich an Wortlisten (»Stein, Birke, Gras, Stuhl«) und erfindet Wörter für Dinge, die keinen Namen haben. Im Lauf der Jahre trotzt sie den Zumutungen des Alltags mehr und mehr mit ihrer Vorstellungskraft.
Als alte Frau blickt Anna zurück auf ihr Leben, so, wie sie sich daran erinnert, an schöne wie an schwere Momente, an die Zeit in Finnland wie auch den Neuanfang mit Thomas in England. Vor allem erinnert sie sich an ihr Häuschen mit den blauen Vorhängen auf einer Schäreninsel, inmitten von Möwen, Schilf und krummen Kiefern, wo sie die Sommer mit ihrer großen Liebe Antti verbrachte - und natürlich an den Tag, an dem ein Wal durch London schwamm.

Ein Roman aus Finnland zum Thema Erinnern und Vergessen, aber auch über die Kraft der Wörter und der Fantasie: märchenhaft, tragikomisch, menschlich - und mit einer unvergesslichen Heldin!

Qui, in questa rassicurante cornice, Stefan Brijs restringe il suo campo visivo fino al punto in cui los angeles superficie serena degli oggetti s’increspa e si lacera. In questo punto abitano un uomo e una donna. Sono sconosciuti l’una all’altro, vivono due vite del tutto different. Lui è un uomo in carriera, è sposato, e questa sera lo vediamo in casa dei suoceri: si appresta a prendere parte alla cena di sempre, con il menu di sempre, immerso nelle conversazioni di sempre. Nella sicurezza dei riti ripetuti e delle tradizioni familiari, l’uomo sente dilagare una strana ansietà, il mistero di un desiderio che non ha nome ma che gli parla d’altri luoghi, di altre e assorted notti. Nella casa accanto abita invece los angeles donna. È una ex docente del conservatorio; si lascia cullare dalle observe delle cantate di Bach mentre prepara l. a. sua semplice, solitaria vigilia. Nella distanza di questi due interni opposti e speculari, di queste due esistenze soltanto fisicamente contigue, uno squarcio si aprirà d’un tratto a unirle e a portarle through, come fiocchi in questa notte ovattata di neve.
