Ntenne delusa a una misteriosa principessa scalza passando per mariti ambigui e amanti vigliacchi è una galleria di personaggi indimenticabili che Eric Emmanuel Schmitt racconta con tenerezza nella loro ricerca della felicitàOdette Toulemonde oltre a essere uno dei racconti di uesta raccolta è anche un film realizzato dallo stesso Schmitt Wanda Winnipeg is a beautiful rich demanding woman who s made a successful career out of marrying rich men and then divorcing them But what happens when she sees her first lover on the beach now an old man and a failure of a painterH l ne likes everything just so including her men but has never been satisfied with what she s got including her man It is only after she loses something she didn t realise was so important to her that she learns about the beauty of imperfection But is it too late for H l neOdette is a single mother and widow working in a shop by day and sewing feathers on costumes at night Her one passion is the books of Balthazar Basan they make her float For Basan his new book is being panned and his wife is distant than ever a letter from a fan called Odette might possibly be the only thing to bring him back to lifeA group of women prisoners in the Gulag all mothers to daughters work together to secretly create paper and acuire a pencil to write on it with only to be stumped what message should they leave their girls whom they ll probably never see again The result of their efforts is uite possibly the most beautiful book in the worldThese eight stories about wildly different women and the important things in their lives were touching whimsical and sometimes bitter sweet but they all end on a note of hope Except for Odette the women tend to all be somewhat cold figures and seem lost in their own womanhood as if they woke up one day and couldn t figure out how they had become the women they became Yet Schmitt has simply and touchingly captured some of the myriad of conflicting emotions and influences of love in the lives of womenNaturally Odette and her passion for stories spoke to me on a personal level and it s one of the happiest stories but I felt moved by all the stories Some were very sad like Every Reason to be Happy and The Barefoot Princess but they all spoke of how easily love and life can slip through your fingers either because you re not looking or because you ve set up entirely the wrong expectations They could be tragic stories precisely because they yearned for something lost and gone something they couldn t have or didn t realise they had but wantedThe prose was deceptively simple the stories usually told from an omnipresent future voice a voice that already knows what happened One of the standouts was The Intruder about an intelligent woman and journalist Odile who keeps seeing an old lady in her apartment and calls the police When her husband Charlie a journalist comes back from the Middle East she breaks down when he calmly tells her he doesn t live there and hasn t in a long time What you come to realise is that Odile is the old lady the man isn t Charlie but their son who lives with his wife and children elsewhere and that Odile this woman who has a PhD and a revered career behind her is losing her marbles On a first reading I didn t get as much out of it as I wanted to possibly because I don t read many short stories and it s not a medium I m terribly comfortable with I would need to re read knowing what to expect and really absorb these stories Because I think they re deceptively simple and my response is too simplistic for my own satisfaction It s also been a week since I read it and it s lost its spark and sharpness and is starting to fade from memoryThe story Odette Toulemonde is based on the film of the same name written and directed by Schmitt which helped inspire this collection of stories

élène perfezionista sempre insoddisfatta incontra Antoine che vede ovunue bellezza ed euilibrio Le ci vorranno molti anni per capire che aveva ragione lui il tempo di un a prima distratto poi stupito dopo ancora tragico e infine convinto e beneficoOtto racconti otto donne otto storie d’a Dalla commessa alla spietata miliardaria dalla tre There are writers and there are storytellers Eric Emmanuel Schmitt is now on my list of storytellersI loved this book so much that I didn t know how to put it into words Easily one of my favorite books this yearSo I read some reviews positive and negative just to get some outside perspective Here s what I came up with when I was doneFirst of all this is a collection of stories about women most of which are narrated by women Unlike another book that I read recently that was narrated by a women but written by a male Schmitt s prose and understanding of the female mind and its compassion is exemplary The writing was simple which was perfect to counter the complexities that the stories reflected They are stories about love in all its forms and how these different types of love are the driving forces of the beautiful creation that is woman Excuse my sappy but that s how you feel at the end of these stories You can t help but love the women and appreciate them despite their faultsI was inspired by this book Immediately once I finished I wanted to reread it if only to be sure that I could commit all of the stories to memory I have the worst memory ever so I have the great fortune of being able to rediscover all my favorite books new every time How s that for a positive outlook I wasn t taken aback by the simple writing as some reviewers have mentioned and it only served to inspire me to try to write some stories of my own So that s what I shall do I can only hope that I can write something that is a fraction as inspiring as these stories
