May 08, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: new-to-me-and-delicious-in , club-de-lecture That was a good antidote to the Vesaas: the opposite of melodrama, everything described simply and directly.
It's also a nice antidote to the constant discourse of merit based on suffering, a whole other way of writing on the left. This book is about ordinary people, their lives, their problems, the details, all described with the kind of love that you can produce when you want to be with people instead of denouncing them.
This book says people, their lives, their stories, are worth something, a That was a good antidote to the Vesaas: the opposite of melodrama, everything described simply and directly. This book says people, their lives, their stories, are worth something, and that's why we write them and that's why we read them. Suffering is, it exists, and we depict it, but it's not what makes us good or bad.
And it's certainly not how we earn the privilege of having our experiences treated with dignity. Jan 26, Andy Weston rated it it was amazing. It is a story beautifully told. Set in Naples in it concerns the key few weeks in the adolescence of a young boy. From a very family, the unnamed narrator is able to deal with the sickness and death of his mother chiefly due to his new friendship with Maria, his first girl friend.
His father cannot read or write and only speaks the Neapolitan dialect, no Italian. The boy has finished school at the end of 5th grade, at the age of The translator, Michael Moore, needs to share the praise; often such books lose something in translation. As his relationship with Maria grows the writing is particularly impressive, dealing with his first sexual experiences.
I read the second half on a rough ferry crossing between Uig and Tarbert in the Hebrides, and made those 60 odd pages last an hour and a half.
I really loved this little book, though page after page I found myself asking why was I enjoying it so much? Not that much happens though, so I would understand if someone were to say that it's a pointless read, not really even delivering much of a story, but what it does give, is some of the most beautiful descriptions and insights into Napol I really loved this little book, though page after page I found myself asking why was I enjoying it so much?
Not that much happens though, so I would understand if someone were to say that it's a pointless read, not really even delivering much of a story, but what it does give, is some of the most beautiful descriptions and insights into Napoletan culture I've ever seen in print. As is often the case with these kind of books, the Napoletan dialect plays a key role here, and I would say it does a wonderful job.

The boy's Father is a Napoletan man who is rather ashamed of his level of Italian, and is thrilled to see that his son is writing, talking and reading in Italian. It's a realistic situation.. One of the more interesting characters that he meets is Don Rafaniello, a hunchback from the North who repairs the shoes for the town..
Rossi ' you feel part of their world, even if, like Rafaniello, you weren't born there, but you've stopped because there's the sea and you can smell it even if you're chilometres away ' It's very easy for books that deal with such an incredibly deep culture such as the Napoletan one to lose itself in its intricacies, but I think Montedidio balances things out perfectly.

We or at least I feel like I understand a little more about Napoli, and how the people think by reading books like this. I would definitely adivse anyone to read this book, it's a small, fast read that is just beautifully indulgent and a pleasure to read. Nov 25, Samir Rawas Sarayji rated it really liked it Shelves: own , fiction , italian-lit. Another masterpiece by Erri de Luca, I'm now looking forward to reading more by this novelist. If I had read this book before Three Horses, I might have given it five stars but as good as it is, it still doesn't measure up to the poetic voice of Three Horses.
My only reservation on this statement is that perhaps this is because each book had a different translator thus I'm not sure if the differences in the prose was intentional by the author or lost in translation. Nevertheless - a book I'll be Another masterpiece by Erri de Luca, I'm now looking forward to reading more by this novelist.
Nevertheless - a book I'll be rereading. Dec 30, Alene Houghton rated it it was amazing. This is book is all about growing pains, the loss of innocence and the bitterness of the transition from childhood to adulthood. So beautiful. Shelves: contemporary-fiction , italian. He writes in Italian rather than Neapolitan, he says, for the respite it offers from the chaos of the dialect and the city he was a somewhat sickly child and so went to scho An enjoyable if ultimately rather conventional male coming-of-age story, set in early s Naples, Montedidio takes the form of brief diary entries by a thirteen-year-old boy who eagerly goes to work as an apprentice carpenter and in the course of a year takes on increasing responsibility and comes to be regarded as a man.

I can put down what happens every day, sheltered from the noise of the Neapoli s, Naples. On his birthday, his father gives him a boomerang. Here he meets Maria, his same age. While the strength of his arm, with which he throws the boomerang, grows, so does his love for Maria. His mother dies, his father looses vitality. He befriends don Rafaniello — his nickname from having red hair like a ravanello, a radish.
Over there, his name was Rav Daniel. So, he decided to stay. To make shoes for the children who were running barefoot on the streets of Naples. Now he repairs shoes for the poor, for free. His voice mutates from adolescence to adulthood. Another book told in short paragraphs, but this one I did enjoy.
