Nella foto Yvan Attal e Sandrine Kimberlain. A sinistra Mili Avital che nel film omonimo diretto dal figlio di Tammuz interpreta Thea. I viaggiatori, in ogni modo, non io. Ma sono tutte le prime pagine che catturano il lettore, Takmuz De Luca lo definisce un esordio a tuffo.

La porta del mare nostro, il sogno mediterraneo. Non manca certo il gioco dei rimandi, degli incastri, dei simboli. Aleksander riconosce in Thea la donna dei suoi sogni come Adamo al risveglio dal suo sonno profondo vede Eva e la riconosce immediatamente come carne della sua carne. Oppure si lascia uccidere? Il modellino di labirinto usato nel film ‘Shining’ di Stanley Kubrick, quello che Jack Nicholson contempla invece di scrivere.

Adesso tutti gli ebrei prendono parte a questa pazzia. Forse pochi ne sono coscienti, ma tutti lo sentono; hanno vinto e hanno perso.

Gammuz ne sarebbero andati, per poi tornare, ciclicamente, in una terrorizzata fuga, mknotauro grida di dolore e distruzione, nel bagliore dello scoppio di navi da guerra in fiamme, nel lamento delle madri per i figli uccisi. Ed io, mi sono tuffata, e ho nuotato tra le pagine come una forsennata, mi sono lasciata ubriacare dalle parole, stordire dai profumi, accecare dai colori per arrivare di schianto alla fine, commossa e frastornata.

E allora mi sono tuffata ancora una volta tra quelle parole, per cercarne altre, per trovare quello che, secondo me, era il vero significato di questa storia, per capire se quel profumo inebriante che mi era sembrato di sentire l’avevo jl veramente o se era solo una suggestione. I tuoi capelli non sono come lino cardato ma bronzo di Damasco. L’ho cercato ma non l’ho trovato. E poi ho iniziato a pensare all’amore breve e fugace di G. View all 7 comments.

Aug 01, Paul rated it really liked it. There’s something to be said for not writing a review as soon as you finish a book. Let it settle, digest what’s been taken in and reflect a little. At least a week has passed and now I find There’s something to be said tammuuz not writing a review as soon as ttammuz finish a book. At least a minotaufo has passed and now I find on reflection minotaueo sense of depth to the plot that didn’t immediately occur to me as I was reading.

This is one that I think I’d like to one day return to afresh. Tammuz’ book chiefly involves four main characters – all brilliantly drawn – and the book is divided into four extended chapters covering each’s story from their particular perspective. There is a lot of overlap, and more than a touch of mischief at play as the author teases the reader with subtle misdirections – almost as the characters in his story will at times play with each other’s emotions.

Alexander Abramov is a midth century Israeli secret agent, but he is not really the hero, or even anti-hero of the spy thriller that I was expecting to read. It is his 41st birthday, and he is alone in rain-soaked London, finding himself living in isolation and distanced both physically and metaphorically from his wife and children, his home and his origins. Into his life appears Thea, an unnervingly young beauty with dark copper coloured hair, who he instantly mniotauro himself with.

At a distance, Abramov observes her going about her life as his obsession grows. The manipulative techniques of his profession allow him to make her existence an inseparable part of his own; an increasingly despairing one that depends on a perpetually out-of-reach and exponentially damaging and unbalanced love affair.

But it would be wrong to dismiss Abramov as a creepy stalker. Yes, he can certainly creep with the best of them, but his irregularly frequent letters to Thea – the pair have never met face to face, necessitating an elaborate Le Carresque arrangement via post restante collections – are anticipated by her with a flattered and romantic sensibility that is somewhere between bemused fascination and distracted fantasy.

The years, and minotaur, pass and we learn of Thea’s other suitors, thankfully more conventional than the strange and melancholic Abramov. There is GR – a somewhat preppy and straight contemporary, who is supposedly more suitable, as well as the enigmatic Greek intellectual and academic Nikos Trianda, who also, like his fellow Mediterranean Alexander, falls in love with Thea at first sight. She is entirely convinced that he is in fact her mysterious and “anonymous friend” himself.

The author’s spare style, and poetic prose, successfully moves the story along at a fair old pace – it is very well written.

By the halfway mark of this slim novel, I was amazed at quite how minotxuro ground had been covered by the writing, and the years that had passed in its story.

The tam,uz of his earlier life that formed his character become ever clearer against a background of isolated privilege, distant parents, nascent Israel, first loves, and existential wars.

Ostensibly a beautifully penned book about obsession and where it might stem from, as well as unfulfilled mlnotauro, there are many passages that subtly suggest there could be more on Tammuz’ mind. I’m not minltauro, but think that writing in he is also saying something about Israel’s place in the Levant, and in turn perhaps raises questions of isolation, belonging, and acceptance.

I don’t know if the last sentence will mean anything to anyone but myself, but Minotaur certainly made me ponder far more than I bargained for when Graham Greene’s “The best novel of the year” blurb caught my eye. Have to say also that I kept on thinking what a terrific film this would make in the hands of the right director.

Well worth the diversion, tammyz I’ll gladly read anything else by Benjamin Tammuz. It is after all both eye-catching and stylish – and deftly drops the very merest hint of the story within: Sep 23, Paulo Sousa rated it i, liked it. Ou talvez tivesse escapado de sua boca. Um livro que recomendo vivamente.

Like most Europa editions it is a bit dark, but nevertheless, a worthy read.

E’ scritto in un linguaggio poetico, semplice e bello, riecheggiante atmosfere e luoghi mediorentali, classici, non ultimo nel titolo, dove al pari del Minotauro della tradizione, anche il protagonista si rivela alla fine un po’ carnefice e un po’ prigioniero del suo Labirinto; linguaggio speziato, fiorito dai molti profumi, ma con un absolute di cannella stavo per dire, tamuz, di Cantico dei Cantici.

La trama poi, in un primo tempo lascia interdetti, minoyauro a richiamare il ricordo di altri romanzi epistolari, dove gli scriventi si mandano lettere bellissime e struggenti senza incontrarsi mai.

Dapprima ho pensato ad un altro libro di uno scrittore israeliano poi anche sarebbe interessante indagare su questo rapporto della letteratura israeliana con la scrittura e la sua efficacia: Interdetti dalla trama, dicevo.

Otto anni nei quali si conoscono e si innamorano epistolarmente, e intrecciano, in un certo qual modo le loro esistenze fino ad un epilogo amaro e tragico, il solo forse plausibile e perfetto: I richiami biblici che ho ritrovato nella lingua, sono evidenti anche nel tema ulteriore del libro, che mi pare evidente sia l’importanza della parola.

Ma chiunque ami la lettura sa bene che le parole sono importanti, lama che ferisce o balsamo che cura, immortali, eterne nei loro effetti, come delle azioni disincarnate. Jun 03, Hanaan rated it really liked it. This is a book about singular, and sometimes obsessive people. I thought it was a well designed, quickly absorbing and unusual. Plunges you, very easily, into someone else’s slightly scary but somehow familiar world. Tammuz cria tres historias independentes que se completam ao final.

Come lui, quasi tutti i personaggi di questo breve romanzo sembrano scelti per rappresentare un campionario di sofferenze senza scampo. Le vite reali dei due proseguono, ma la fantasia malsana che li lega avvelena, irretisce e imprigiona anche coloro che, estranei al labirinto, cercano di amarli nel mondo e non al di fuori o contro di esso, coi poveri mezzi e i modesti limiti degli esseri umani e non gli infiniti poteri seduttivi delle creature di carta.

Thea, adolescente nella Londra che si appresta a diventare swinging, rimane prigioniera di un gioco di seduzione epistolare, di una manipolazione malsana di cui diviene parte attiva, attrice, complice fino forse a perdervisi. Lea, ingenua ragazzina mediorientale che sogna una famiglia, ama Alexander e lo sposa, ma si ritrova prigioniera di una casa troppo grande e di un uomo troppo distante.

Appena finito il libro, ho pensato che era scritto davvero bene. Se avete genitori anziani, vi sfido a non commuovervi. Persino rispetto al suo proprio destino. Apr 11, Ruben rated it really liked it. I had read this one about 20 years ago, I let the book to someone, and as expected it never came back, recently I bought it again, and started to read it, fearing if I should not like it this time, well I liked it a lot again, complex but strong characters, some history, a very playful management of time, and a couple of love stories on difficult times.

For some reason every book regarding the Levantine cultures end up capturing me, I recommend it very much! Jan 11, Michael Windle rated it really liked it. Mysterious, meticulous and an easy read. No rockets from headlights.
