La fiaba oscura di LaValle

IMG_2492Magia, orrore, mistero, perdita: questi sono solo alcuni degli ingredienti che Victor LaValle, moderno maestro dell’horror, ha sapientemente mescolato nel suo ultimo romanzo, The Changeling.

Il romanzo, il cui titolo è stato preso in prestito da un’opera di Kenzaburo Oe, scrittore giapponese molto amato da LaValle, racconta il viaggio terribile di un uomo alla ricerca della moglie scomparsa, una versione dark e spaventosa di una fiaba moderna.

Il volume è disponibile anche in Italia a questo link.

Every human being is a series of stories; it’s nice when someone wants to hear a new one. (Victor LaValle)

A new novel by the modern Master of horror, Victor LaValle: The Changeling, a dark modern fairy tale about magic, loss, mystery, myth and many other ingredients, well mixed by this talented writer.

The title of the novel was burrowed by a work of Kenzaburo Oe, japanese writer well known by LaValle.

The volume is available at this link.

 

 

La Ballata di Black Tom

Ballata di Black TomDisponibile per Edizioni Hypnos, nella collana Visioni, la traduzione italiana della novella di Victor LaValle, La Ballata di Black Tom, in formato digitale e cartaceo.

Il volume, il quinto della collana, con traduzione di Laura Sestri e copertina di Ivo Torello, riprende uno dei classici del fantastico, “Orrore a Red Hook” di H.P. Lovecraft, immergendolo nella realtà degli afroamericani della New York degli anni Venti.

La novella è finalista ai premi Hugo, Nebula, Stoker e Shirley Jackson.

Quello che uomini come me avrebbero respinto come superstizione o, peggio, come male puro, io imparavo invece ad apprezzarlo. Più leggevo, più ascoltavo, più divenivo sicuro che un immenso e segreto spettacolo fosse in atto durante la mia vita, durante tutte le nostre vite, ma la maggior parte di noi era troppo ignorante, o troppo spaventata per alzare lo sguardo e guardare. Perché guardare significherebbe capire che lo spettacolo non è stato allestito per noi. Significherebbe apprendere che non siamo assolutamente di alcun interesse per gli attori.

It is now available in italian the latest novella by Victor LaValle , published by Edizioni Hypnos: La Ballata di Black Tom, the fifth volume in the Visioni series, in digital and paper edition. The Author proposes a reinvention of the lovecraftian “Horror at Red Hook” in the US’s Twenties.

The novella was nominated for Hugo, Nebula, Stoker and Shirley Jackson Awards.
