Description

“The measure of the story is a small miracle, a place in literature where 'small' does not diminish the quantity of the miracle but makes it exact. In this book of stories, written by a reader of stories, then, there are other small miracles, stories invented and collected at the crossroads between the human and the divine, at that point of the road, that is, where everyday stories appear heroic, heroic ones are natural and destiny is nothing more than one of the possible variations of chance. There, if you look closely, there is a pantheon waiting to be plucked: in the cities, in bars, on the beach, between the sheets and during a tennis match. To reveal the intersection, a betrayal, suffered or inflicted, by oneself or by the other is enough; betrays those who cannot or do not want to comply with circumstances. Here no one is where they should be.” Valeria Parrella Betrayals which are themselves miracles, opportunities to stop for a moment and seize the opportunity to escape ourselves or to be more so than ever, because no narrative model like the story is able to give us illuminations, and no one does it like Valeria Parrella.
