affascinante come tuffarsi al centro di un ciclone, e ovviamente ci comporta l esserne inevitabilmente risucchiati Anche perch non si tratta di un ciclone qualsiasi, ma il vortice di pensieri di una mente speciale, quella della tormentata Zelda Fitzgerald.Qualche raccomandazione d obbligo soprattutto all inizio la lettura non agevole In primis il libro oscilla tra la voce della giovanissima Zelda 1919 1924 e le considerazioni nonch i dialoghi con i medici della Zelda pi matura, nel 1940 Oltre a questa continua altalena temporale, la narrazione interrotta, poco coerente, perennemente in bilico tra il ricordo e la percezione personale del ricordo Tuttavia, se vi settate sul mood corretto, ovvero se cominciate a vedere il testo come lo stream of consciousness di una mente sconvolta, provata dagli eventi privati che l hanno colpita, da una vita che forse a conti fatti non quella sognata, forzatamente modellata dalla pressione dei media e dello Star System in maniera non molto diversa a quello che accade al giorno d oggi alle star e da un matrimonio che ha la stessa passione di due nibbi reali per tirare in ballo lo splendido Hopkins di Meet Joe Black , allora tutto assume un senso Anzi, questa narrazione interrotta e incoerente vi apparir come l unica possibile e sincera modalit per dare voce all anima di Zelda.Alabama Song una storia d a In primo luogo l a disperato per la vita, tanto pi disperatamente agognata quanto pi la si vede sfuggire di mano una storia d a malato all interno di un matrimonio disturbato, in cui la personalit esuberante di Zelda si scontra con l altrettanto imponente ed egocentrica figura del marito Scott ed inutile fare le femministe dell ultima ora Zelda ha vissuto un secolo fa, in un epoca che non assolutamente paragonabile alla nostra per quel che riguarda la definizione del giusto posto o del giusto ruolo di una donna Zelda ha provato a emergere in un epoca in cui ogni suo tentativo di affermazione era visto nel migliore dei casi, e solo perch si trattava di personaggi di spicco come un capriccio e questa frustrazione senza dubbio uno degli elementi che pi l ha schiacciata Infine, anche una vera e struggente storia d a, quell a perfetto che vive nel ricordo di un attimo, per Edouard Jozan.Perch 4 stelle, allora Punctum dolens finale la Nota dell Autore, dove Leroy spiega la natura romanzata del suo lavoro e fin qui tutto ok, non certo il primo a fare questa operazione su un personaggio realmente vissuto ed elenca gli eventi totalmente inventati all interno del libro Ecco, qui un po l ho odiato, perch ha inserito degli elementi cruciali, ancorch mai avvenuti e quindi, dobbiamo supporre, usati solo per aggiungere dramma alla vicenda Ma la splendida, tormentata creatura che stata Zelda Fitzgerald non aveva certo bisogno di queste invenzioni La sua vita gi pu parlare da s , senza inutili contorni Alabama Song Gilles Leroy France firt published in 2007I finished it in 28th July 2012 8 30 am Alabama Song Gilles

have written it a few times as a rule, I dislike writing here, on Goodreads, about books that have disappointed, bored, or annoyed me There are too many of them and most of the time, I don t even bother finishing them But this novel has actually infuriated me a great deal, it deserves to be trashed, and I ll happily do it Maybe what has me so angry is that this book won the most prestigious literary prize in France, when, really, all it deserves is to end up in a trashcan The concept in itself had me interested, though the heroine is Zelda Fitzgerald, and the whole book is narrated by her Interesting idea, right It is a novel, not a biography, and I actually like the idea of taking an almost contemporary character and tell his, or her, story, through fiction Many writers do it with ancient historical figures, after all And Zelda is a fascinating and complex woman, whose life, at the same time glorious, brilliant, pathetic, and heartbreaking, is worth a great novel The problem is, Leroy is a not only a bad writer his style is horrendous, botched, if not simply ugly at some points , but his approach to the story and the character is completely misgiving, when not stupid Anyone who knows about the life of the Fitzgeralds can only be, bluntly, very pissed by this book Really The psychology is off, huge and major parts of Zelda s life disappear, all the characters are reduced to caricatures, the environment so important to who those people were and how they lived is non existent all the chapters that take place in Alabama, for example, could take place in some dreary little French suburb you d be hard pressed to see a difference , reality is distorted in a way that gives a bad name to fiction, the dialogues are often ridicule, and some scenes, such as the supposedly erotic ones, are just risible I was so shocked by how bad this novel is, and by how well it seems to have been received by, at least, some part of the French literary establishment, that it left me speechless for a while I ll applaud any writer who dares write a novel about a real character as long as his work allows us to understand in a better way who he s writing about McCann has done that brilliantly with Dancer, about Nureiev, or Echenoz with his Ravel those are truly wonderful books Leroy s sad underachievement is an insult not only to Zelda Fitzgerald, but also to the reader A decent writing style could at least have saved his enterprise But it isn t to be found here
