In a Heartbeat is A. Turner Mojica's 2012 translation of a 2006 novel È stato un attimo by Sandrone Dazieri. This is a clever story a a twenty-five year-old drug dealer in Milan who is knocked unconscious in 1990 and comes to in 2005 as a successful advertising executive who is suspected of murdering his boss. This novel has an interesting mystery to explore, but Dazieri's main concern seems to be a meditation on how much the protagonist, his world, and our world has changed over those mere fi ...more

Lo so, avrei dovuto finire il mese di marzo leggendo questo libro, o quest’altro, sarebbe stato coerente col tema della storia americana pre e post Conquista avviato con Le parole di Malinche e Conquista … Avevo anche provato a iniziare Bartolomé de las Casas e i diritti degli indiani, e non sembrava male, però questo periodo è faticoso e mi andava un romanzo svelto, divertente, scorrevole.

Questo libro è stata una scoperta davvero casuale: girovagavo tra le pagine di Goodreads e una fra le ta

Dall'ultima recensione su Dazieri (,http://libritudine.blogspot.com/2006/...) mi ero ripromessa di non comprare più nessun suo libro, a causa della sua chiamiamola, leggera incazzosità, infatti me lo sono fatto regalare.
Questo romanzo non vede il solito Gorilla come protagonista principale, ma ritroviamo alcuni suoi amici come Valentina, l'Elefante e Mirko, oltre che una Milano, che ormai da bere ha veramente poco...

Un ricco pubblicitario si risveglia da uno shock elettrico e scopre che i suoi ricordi sono fermi a vent’anni prima, quando era un piccolo delinquente di periferia. Il romanzo è il racconto della ricostruzione della sua memoria assieme alla ricerca dei motivi per cui qualcuno lo vuole morto. Dazieri abbandona il suo Gorilla, ma il tema del doppio in qualche modo permane, con il malavitoso degli anni ’80 che deve adattarsi alla Milano di oggi e all’ambiente bene frequentato dal suo alter ego ricc ...more

Santo wakes up in one of the toilets of La Scala in Milan after being electrocuted by a faulty light switch. Santo is a successful manager, and has built his fortune on a mixture of personal ruthlessness and political skill, but he doesn't remember any of it: his memory of the previous twenty years of his life has disappeared. Now someone is trying to kill him, and the police are accusing him of a murder he doesn't know he committed. To discover the truth, Santo will have to search his forgotten

scorrevole, ma troppo breve.
Dazieri si �� specializzato, a quanto pare, sui personaggi schizofrenici o con duplice identit�� insita.
e anche se �� un libro estraneo al ciclo del Gorilla, appaiono diversi personaggi della saga... come a dire: quello del Gorilla �� un micromondo, oltre il quale non si va.

Carino, ma ripeto, troppo breve.

Leggete quella di Fabio Montale. Troppo piccole le differenze per riscriverla, troppo grosso il rischio di ripeterla.

Bello, peccato forse il finale un po' affrettato...
