Fraîchement nommé dans los angeles Ville Rose, l'inspecteur Cadin a du ache sur los angeles planche d'autant que les situationnistes font tourner l. a. mairie en bourrique. Progressivement il va établir un lien entre ces morts que séparent deux décennies : les Thiraud, tous deux enseignants, se passionnaient pour l'histoire de leur ville natale, Drancy.

Même s'il n'est jamais mentionné, l. a. trame met en reason l'ancien préfet de los angeles Gironde, Maurice Papon. Quinze ans avant son procès interminable, Daeninckx pointait le zèle aveugle de ce haut fonctionnaire. L'auteur, soigneusement documenté, a su inclure ces faits historiques dans un roman bien charpenté, qui reste sûrement l'une de ses plus belles réussites. --Nicolas Mesplède

Download La rabbia e l'orgoglio by Oriana Fallaci PDF

By Oriana Fallaci

Con 'La Rabbia e L'Orgoglio' Oriana Fallaci rompe un silenzio durato dieci anni. Lo rompe prendendo spunto dall'apocalisse che l. a. mattina dell'11 ssettembre 2001, non molto lontano dalla sua casa di big apple, disintegrò le due Torri di long island e incenerì migliaia di creature. Preceduto dal clamore che l. a. parte pubblicata dai giornali in Italia e all'estero suscitò diciotto giorni dopo l'immane tragedia, il libro si presenta finalmente nella sua versione integrale. Vale a dire col suo testo completo e non quello che allora, facts l'eccesiva lunghezza, l. a. Fallaci ridusse a poco più della metà. Si presenta inoltree arricchito da una drammatica prefazione dove l. a. Fallaci spiega come esso nacque e dove, spiegando perché il terrorismo islamico non si coclude con los angeles sconfitta dei talebani in Afghanistan, descrive los angeles realtà globale della Guerra Santa. Una prefazione infine, dove cogliendoci di sorpresa parla anche di sé stessa: del suo lavoro, del suo ermetico isolamento, delle sue scelte rigorose e spietate. Spesso inserendo memorie personali, episodi illuminanti della sua vita, nel testo parla invece dei temi legati all'11 settembre 2001: l'America, l'Italia, l'Europa, l'Islam, noi. Soprattutto di noi. Col suo noto coraggio lancia accuse durissime, scaglia furibonde invettive. Con l. a. sua brutale sincerità espone le lucide idee e le passioni, le scomode verità e le riflessioni su cui in questi anni di caparbio silenzio aveva voluto tacere. Ciò che nella prefazione los angeles Fallaci definisce "piccolo libro" è in realtà un grande libro. Un libro prezioso, un libro che scuote le coscienze, anzi le sconvolge. Ma è anche il ritratto di un'anima. los angeles sua anima. Resterà dentro di noi come una spina nel cervello e nel cuore.
