Galardonada con el Premio Vittorini, nominada al Premio Strega y una de las grandes revelaciones literarias en Italia de los últimos tiempos.

Esta novela trata sobre la distancia que separa a los padres de los hijos: unas memorias familiares, una apasionada mirada a la literatura y el retrato de uno de los episodios más violentos de Italia.

«La pregunta no es quiénes fueron nuestros padres antes de que naciéramos. La pregunta es: ¿existieron realmente antes de que naciéramos?» Nadia Terranova, TTL

El joven corre bajo la lluvia, descalzo, cubierto de una sangre que no es suya. Llamémoslo L.B. y acerquémonos a él a través de los acontecimientos que le condujeron a esa noche. Nos guía la voz de una joven fuerte, solitaria, apasionada por la literatura, y esta novela es el recuerdo y la crónica de cómo se enfrentó a la muerte de su padre, lo que quedó del vínculo con él, y al descubrimiento tardío del caso judicial que le llevó a prisión. ¿Quién era L.B., ese médico de la clase trabajadora que estaba del lado de los perdedores, que siempre intentaba salvar a alguien, que fue condenado por colaboración con banda armada? ¿Por qué nunca quiso hablar del pasado? Testimonios, archivos y carpetas, recuerdos y revelaciones componen el retrato de una persona complicada y contradictoria que vivió una época complicada y contradictoria. Turín es el telón de fondo de la lucha política diaria y de la violencia que destruyó el sueño de un mundo nuevo, dejando un legado de desilusión y ruina. Esta novela, la revelación literaria del año en Italia, es la historia de un hombre, de su entorno y sus afiliaciones, es su vida visitada con amor y pudor por una hija, Marta Barone, para quien el mundo se mide y construye a través de la palabra leída y escrita.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Winner of the Vittorini Prize, nominated for the Strega Prize, and one of the greatest literary revelations in Italy of recent times.
 
This novel is about the distance that separates parents from children: family memories, a passionate look at literature, and a portrait of one of the most violent episodes in Italian history.
 
“The question is not who our parents were before we were born. The question is: did they really exist before we were born? " Nadia Terranova, TTL
 
The young man runs in the rain, barefoot, covered in blood that is not his own. Let's call him L.B. And let's take a closer look at him through the events that led up to that night. We are guided by the voice of a strong young woman, lonely, passionate about literature, and this novel is the memory and chronicle of how she faced the death of her father, what remained of the bond with him, and the late discovery of the court case that sent him to prison. Who was L.B., that working-class doctor who sided with losers, who was always trying to save someone, who was convicted of collaboration with an armed gang? Why did you never want to talk about the past? Testimonies, files and folders, memories and revelations make up the portrait of a complicated and contradictory person who lived through a complicated and contradictory time. Turin is the backdrop for the daily political struggle and violence that destroyed the dream of a new world, leaving a legacy of disappointment and ruin. This novel, the literary revelation of the year in Italy, is the story of a man, his surroundings and his affiliations, it is his life examined with love and modesty by a daughter, Marta Barone, for whom the world is measured and built through the word that is written and read.
