    Giorgia Tribuiani's luxuriant literary output seems to revolve around a central point that is brought into direct focus here: the author wrote these pages gazing at the eyes of Medusa. But instead of being petrified, she has managed to creatively take us to this perturbing place.  The short and dry chapters of this novel take us ruthlessly into a tragedy with no way out, namely the scene in which the suicidal person awaits impact. The lingering trauma, however, is that of the train driver, who can do nothing against the inescapable approach of the crash, in spite of all the attempts required by the intervention protocol. The lost life of the suicide creeps into the driver's life like an element nested deep within. The stark, linear chapters in which this tragedy unfolds alternate with other chapters in which we see the traumatised man trying to cope with this disruption in his life that has seeped into him.

    The author accompanies her text with an excellent interview on post-traumatic stress disorder with Dr. Domenico De Berardis, psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Director of the Giulianova (TE) Mental Health Centre.

    Gherardo Bortolotti is both a refined and a dodgy writer. He manages to create extraordinary hypothetical worlds in this geometrically perfect and sentimentally deep composition. These novels are just drafted, they are digressions that instantly hit. Bortolotti here takes from Calvino and Perec, allowing him to bring the astonishment and tremor of our fragile, at times useless, lives to the page. We face yet another proof of this author’s humble and great talent. 

     

    Gherardo Bortolotti was born in Brescia in 1972. Visionary and experimental, he has published Tecniche di basso livello (Laveri, 2009), Oltre il pubblico: la letteratura e il passaggio alla rete (Nuova prosa, 2014), Le storie del pavimento (Tic Edizioni, 2018), Low. Una trilogia (Tic Edizioni, 2020), Romanzetto estivo (Tic Edizioni, 2021).

    This autobiographical short story accompanies us throughout half a century of a devouring passion, born by buying a small bamboo fishing pole in a stationary store. It takes the protagonist to the final line of fly fishing, the only technique with a culture and tradition, even literary, that dates back centuries. A personal and spiritual evolution is described with a transporting intensity, but always with politeness and irony, giving the reader unthought of images, absolute ethical questions, extraordinary narrative pictures. Moreover, it opens up a lost horizon: that even today life among nature might be possible after all.
