Best Book!!! Illumination

si daca durerea ar fi unul dintre cele mai importante lucruri care ni se intimpla?

asta e intrebarea pe care o pune Kevin Brockmeier in Illumination, cea mai buna carte pe care am citit-o de multe luni incoace.
atit de buna incit m-am apucat de citit la 2 noaptea si pina astazi de dimineata o terminasem (desi era in plan sa dorm cit mai mult in week end-ul asta;) )

cartea pleaca de la o premisa splendida: toata durerea umana incepe sa se manifeste ca o lumina si, astfel, cancerul, multilarile sau chiar mahmureala sunt forme de iluminare.

“A woman in a blue burka, long pencils of light shining through the net of her veil. A team of cyclists with their knees and feet drawing iridescent circles in the air. A girl with a luminous scrape on her arm, her face caught in an expression of inquisitive fear…the news anchor addressed the camera, saying how from all around the world today we are receiving continuing reports of this strange occurrence: light, pouring from the injuries of the sick and the wounded.”

aici puteti citi un alt fragment din carte (mai lungutz) si o si puteti cumpara on line.

ce zice autorul despre carte?

I was thinking about the various forms of pain people are forced to endure, wondering, really, what could all that suffering possibly be good for, and found myself conducting a thought experiment: What if our pain was what made us beautiful to God? What if our pain was the most beautiful thing about us? I had an image of someone literally glowing with his injuries. This simple equation, of pain with light, gave birth to the book.

Kevin Brockmeier e revelatia noului val de scriitori americani, scrie cu tandretea lui Nicole Strauss, cu interesul pentru structuri si forme noi de abordare a cartii ca Safran Foer, dar e interesat de SF intr-un mod aproape copilaresc si asta-l face absolut delicios.

astazi am in plan sa ma ocup de una din cartile lui de dinainte de Illumination, The brief history of the Dead – pentru care a creat un site special, ca un oras, unde fiecare dintre personaje vorbeste, iar populatia moare in timp ce vizitezi orasul/site-ul.

e absolut demential Brockmeier, cautati-i cartile pe amazon.

cu regret tocmai ce am descoperit ca nu poate fi citita decit pe computerul pe care a fost descarcata.

asa ca trebuie sa va dau laptopul meu. n-am fost atenta cind am platit-o, ca o descarcam in Tab-ul Samsung si era mai usor de dat
