Waiting On Wednesday #31 - Lair of Dreams


Waiting On Wednesay è la rubrica ideata dal blog Breaking the Spine in cui, il mercoledì, è possibile parlare di un libro o più che stiamo aspettando con impazienza.
In questi ultimi giorni ho finalmente iniziato a leggere un romanzo acquistato da secoli, ma che solo adesso mi sono decisa ad aprire. Si tratta de La stella nera di New York, di Libba Bray! Una storia che mi sta letteralmente facendo impazzire. Proprio per questo nel Waiting On Wednesday non poteva mancare il seguito di "The Diviners" (il titolo originale della Stella nera): Lair of Dreams!


Trama de La stella nera di New York.New York City, 1926. I vetri dei grattacieli risplendono dei bagliori di mille festeanimate da balli sfrenati a ritmo di charlestone dal tintinnio delle perle sui vestiti luccicanti. L’alcol scorre a fiumi nonostante i divieti e, a giudicare dall’effervescenza di Manhattan,il mondo sembra destinato a un futuro radioso. È qui che in seguito all’ennesima eccentricità viene spedita dai genitori l’irriverente Evie O’Neill, una ragazza dell’Ohio che non aspetta altro che tuffarsi tra le infinite possibilità offerte dalla metropoli. A ospitarla è lo zio Will, un professore, parente dei Fitzgerald, che dirige il Museo Americano del Folklore, delle Superstizioni e dell’Occulto, detto anche Museo del Brivido: un luogo magico dal fascino decadente,che custodisce nelle sue teche e tra i suoi bui corridoi le tracce del retroterra misterioso dell’America. Ma quando lo sfolgorio della città viene oscurato da una serie di delitti a sfondo esoterico, New York precipita in un vortice di paura ed Evie, che da subito assiste lo zio nella consulenza alla polizia, è chiamata a collaborare alle indagini, anche per quel suo dono di vedere il passato delle persone toccando un oggetto a loro appartenuto. Muovendosi tra fumosi jazz club e bassifondi urbani, scintillanti negozi e sale spettrali, la ragazza s’inoltrerà insieme a molti compagni di strada in un gorgo di eventi evocato dal passato, e che nel passato dovrà essere ricacciato, pena il sopravvento di un antico male oscuro.


In uscita in patria il 14 Aprile 2015, l'attesa è ancora lontana per poter godere di questo gioiellino che conterà ben 608 pagine (mi emoziono al pensiero). Volendolo leggere in italiano, poi... Non oso immaginare, ma proverò ad aspettare! La traduzione attuale di Donatella Rizzati mi sta piacendo davvero tantissimo, quindi spero continui lei con Lair of Dreams

  1. Il mio amore incondizionato nei confronti di Libba Bray è ormai di lunghiiiiiissima data, quindi aspetto anch'io ardentemente "Liar of Dreams"! :)
    Probabilmente, se non verrà annunciato alla svelta in italiano (e purtroppo noto con dispiacere che la Fazi sembra aver perso qualsiasi interesse nei confronti del genere fantastico, ultimamente..), lo leggerò direttamente in lingua originale a primavera! ^____^

    1. Io purtroppo avevo preso il primo in italiano, quindi forse aspetterò la pubblicazione nostrana (se avrò la certezza che ci sarà!). La traduzione comunque mi sta piacendo un sacco! È fantastica!

  3. La stella nera di N.Y. è uno di quei libri che ha saputo conquistarmi completamente. Nonostante la mole l'ho divorato e sn rimasta affascinata dalle atmosfere anni venti, dalla presenza costante dell'esoterismo e dall'intreccio narrativo intricato e imprevedibile.

    1. Non l'ho iniziato fino a ora perché da un lato mi intimidiva la mole, dall'altro non mi "ispirava" sul momento. Adesso sono contenta di aver ceduto a quel momento di ispirazione folle perché lo adoro, adoro adoro!!! L'esoterismo mi strega, le scene più inquietanti mi ammaliano e terrorizzano, è tutto stupendo!
