Umberto's Recent Updates

Gun, With Occasional Music by Jonathan Lethem

Having read it twice, I can say that it stands a second reading. There's a lot of Chandler of course but also more Dick than I noticed the first time. And twenty years later, its political side is getting more and more visible. Sentences like this "I ...more

One of the greatest science-fiction novels ever. An impressive achievement in terms of size, depth, ambition, visionary power. A contemporary classic.

Asciutto, quasi cristallino, questo romanzo breve scava nell'Italia di provincia di oggi. Lo fa senza più il taglio della commedia all'italiana; ben poco di commedia resta in questa vicenda che sembra uscita dalle chiacchiere dal barbiere (per chi an ...more
