Allora il problema di Eggers sono i romanzi! Quando scrive biografie, autobiografie, memoir, reportage o non-fiction in generale è più che bravo. Soprattutto qui, che forse supera anche il suo libro d’esordio. La storia è quella di Valentino Achak De ...more

“Don’t say ‘ever.’ At this point in history every reason man could use for killing he’s used. But you’re wrong—there are men who fear their image in others. It’s something to do with sharing their fate.”
Rae DelBianco, Rough Animals

Rae DelBianco
“There’s two things will kill you in the desert, and half of it’s the thirst and the other half’s letting your mind go to it.”
Rae DelBianco, Rough Animals

“Why is it always the horse that dies first, and never you?” the girl asked.
“Because of strength of will.”
She stopped with the sand.
“Does that still matter out here?”
“It always does.”
“That sounds like fate.”
The mule shifted and he put a hand on one of its legs.
“Well, maybe it’s fate.”
“Then what is fate?” she asked, the voice seeming amputated and roving in the sightless black.
“It’s somethin you’re born with. Somethin that’s passed down from the fathers before and shows itself in triggers that weren’t meant to be pulled and triggers that were. You caint control it and can only look back on it as explanation for why you did the things you did even if they’ve ruined you because it couldn’t have been any other way.”
“Can you fight against it?”
“Yeah, like you can fight against the land.”
Rae DelBianco, Rough Animals

Rae DelBianco
“Killing’s not an end but a transfer of power. Like how protein is never wasted in death, just redirected to another use, power’s the same. It’s transferred to control over life, or one more day alive. If you kill sincerely, it’s impersonal, done without hesitation, and with the intent to use it to its fullest purpose.”
Rae DelBianco, Rough Animals

“sunset. When Smith awoke it was if he had awakened from something like dying and was unsure that he hadn’t, and if you died would you take the violence you’ve committed with you or would it remain as a scar upon the earth. And if the physical manifestation of it meant a thing, he knew that if he survived and made it back home and lived a long life that his body would rot into moss and dissolve centuries before the dried out bones of those he’d felled in the desert started to decay.”
Rae DelBianco, Rough Animals
