La ballata delle prugne secche

Abbandonata Anna Karenina sul comodino, lasciato Levin ai suoi tormenti amorosi nella noiosa campagna russa, ho deciso di concedermi una lettura leggera.
Avevo letto un’invitante recensione (nella quale si riprendeva la frase di pag. 11 “crescere in una famiglia di sinistra…), la mia amica Luisa (il mio guru letterario) l’aveva da poco acquistato (e se l’aveva acquistato lei…), e poi la quarta di copertina: “L’idea nasce da una semplice constatazione: non si e’ mai sentito un uomo che vorrebbe rinascere donna, non si e’ mai sentita una donna che vorrebbe rinascere donna. Tirate voi le somme.”.
Cosi’ ho preso La ballata delle prugne secche (Pulsatilla, ed. Castelvecchi).
Quando compro un libro leggo solo di sfuggita le recensioni, per non lasciarmi fuorviare dai giudizi altrui, perche’ amo le sorprese e voglio arrivare alla lettura senza troppe informazioni. A volte funziona a volte no, come in questo caso.
L’ho letto d’un fiato, ho anche sorriso spesso, ma giunta alla fine non ho potuto fare a meno di pensare che un libro del genere l’avrei potuto scrivere anche io. Quello che mi ero immaginata come una spassosa satira su un certo tipo di famiglia di sinistra, un’ironica presa in giro di atteggiamenti e tic post-post sessantottini si e’ rivelata una abbastanza banale pseudo-autobiografia di una persona qualunque.
L’infanzia della protagonista non e’ niente di che. Tutti, enfatizzando i tratti piu’ caricaturali dei propri genitori o parenti, raccontando con spirito episodi succosi della propria fanciullezza puo’ far sorridere. E’ un po’ come vedere un film di 20 anni fa!
Il resto? Gli stessi argomenti trattati nelle chiacchierate con le mie amiche.
Mi aspettavo un po’ di piu’ che il semplice racconto della vita di una ventenne qualunque.

Hai ragione,quanto a originalita'lascia a desiderare ma vuoi mettere la furbizia dell'autrice che della sua pur banale ispirazione ha fatto fonte di lucro?tutto sta ad arrivarci per primi..

La tua guru (che non pensava proprio di avere l’onore di una citazione nel tuo blog) spera di fare onorevole ammenda segnalandoti un delizioso romanzo: Donne informate sui fatti, di Carlo Fruttero, ed. Mondadori..
..se non apprezzi neppure stavolta mi arrendo..e poi considera che tra tanta frutta di qualita’ una “prugna secca” ogni tanto puo’ capitare!

Mmmmmmmh. Secondo me la furbata l'ha fatta più l'editore. La Pulsatilla mi sembra un po' appassita: ha partecipato al dopo Sanremo ma a quanto pare non ha lasciato il segno, il suo blog è sempre meno "acido"...
Per quanto riguarda le qualità intrinseche delle prugne secche...mi taccio.
