    Чудесно оформление и страхотен превод който оправдава четенето За съжаление самото съдържание не го оправдава тези разкази са изсмукани от пръстите като в работилница по творческо писане която дава твърде къси срокове за предаване на следващото домашно И всичко с един такъв многознаен тон Забравя се до минути след прочитане

    Fairground Magician is an exploration of love told through a series of thirteen tales Via these short stories the author examines probes and delves into its various guises revealing the conflicts that tear people asunder and the moments that although go unnoticed bind two individuals so that “Soul and body have no bounds” Jelena Lengold uses various genres from realism through the use of thriller eroticism to shade the nuances of the relationships whether it’s the cold loss of a love unfulfilled or that heat that first burns before leaving a tranuil euphoria in its wakeOn reading the blurb on the back cover I was slightly worried with the idea of eroticism purely because of the likes of fifty shades of grey its ilk I needn’t have been although several tales explore the nature of sexuality they do so as an integral part of existence the erotic elements are like love they have no safety net or get out clause This is a sensuous sexy intelligent collection of tales that may shock but will make you think it has already won a number of European prizes including The European Union Prize for Literature 20113the fairground magician front coverFairground Magician is a collection of thirteen tales revolving around the various faces of the Gods of love whether this is Eros who represents love sexual passion and naughty thoughts or Yue Lao who binds two people together with an invisible red string it doesn’t matter they will find themselves reflected within this book’s pagesI read this in the English Translation through the publisher Istroshttpparrishlanternblogspotcouk

    Jelena Lengold è alla sua prima pubblicazione per la Zandonai casa editrice che abbiamo imparato a riconoscere come punto di riferimento per le letterature balcaniche ma ha già alle spalle una serie consistente di opere e diverse traduzioni all’estero La raccolta di short stories con la uale è arrivata in Italia impreziosita dalla traduzione di Alice Parmeggiani le è valsa l’European Prize for Literature 2013 per il suo paese la SerbiaLe occasioni che danno a Jelena Lengold il la per comporre le sue brevi storie sono estremamente uotidiane a tratti uasi banali un viaggio in aereo una vacanza di pochi giorni separazioni e attese di cui facciamo esperienza ogni giorno ma il tratto con cui vengono raccontate colpisce per l’estrema originalità e la forza della sua personalità La sua scrittura è familiare uasi domestica ben collocata nella realtà coadiuvata da un tono diretto e semplice a volte anche ironico come nel racconto Love me tender dove la protagonista scivola senza speranza nelle sue fantasticherie per un finto Elvis Per alcuni versi potrebbe uasi somigliare a una versione più spregiudicata e fresca della scrittrice giapponese Banana Yoshimoto la scrittura della Lengold è forte e garbata al contempo e i suoi protagonisti si raccontano attraverso di lei confidando alla pagina non solo frustrazioni e malinconie ma soprattutto il loro accorgersi di una realtà altra intravista dallo spiraglio della loro solitudineIn un’intervista rilasciata a Lucilla Parisi la scrittrice si sofferma più attentamente proprio sul concetto di solitudine che a una prima lettura sembra essere l’elemento comune a tutte le sue storie“ uesto libro parla sì di solitudine ma intesa come destino di ogni persona Essere soli non significa necessariamente non avere nessuna persona intorno ritengo invece che sia più uno stato mentale una sorta di raggiunta consapevolezza per cui ogni individuo è solo indipendentemente dal numero di persone che lo circondano”Il mix di prospettive differenti svela un sistema di simboli di non così immediata comprensione nonostante la semplicità del discorso dietro le parole dei personaggi si cela sempre una dimensione sospesa e sensuale uno spazio limite in cui fermenta l’epifania Così una raccolta di racconti d’ispirazione uotidiana che avrebbe tranuillamente potuto passare inosservata si impone invece come un’affascinante serie di momenti fatali e irripetibili Per il fascino dello stile sembra uasi che sia la stessa Lengold “il mago della fiera” molto più che un fenomeno da baraccone i cui trucchi sono facili da scoprire Nella sua sensibilità non c’è l’inganno di una uotidianità posticcia e trita ma piuttosto l’incanto uieto e malinconico che subivamo uando durante una fiera da bambini restavamo a bocca aperta di fronte all’ennesima magia acuistata per ualche soldo

    Oj dobra ta książka I bardziej bym ją jednak polecał czytelnikom niż czytelniczkomBo to jest jednak inny sposób patrzenia czy wyrażania emocji niż ten najbardziej powszechny najczęściej spotykany w zdominowanym jednak przez pisarzy literackim mainstreamie I Literaturę mam na myśli a nie 'czytadła' Żeby tak autor Rozwiązłej i Wiwarium potrafił pisać

    I have always enjoyed Lengold's style of writing and when she has good subject matter the end result is constantly entertaining and thoroughly humorous In Fairground Musician the subject matter carries its weight about half the time She seems to write best when she's not in the mood for writing and the contempt blows through her work Short stories such as Get thee to a nunnery and Nosedive are hilarious in their prose and although the ending is a bit telegraphed Aurora Borealis brings the emotional weight yet other stories such as Love me tender Fairground magician and Under the guise of highbrow literature bring little to the party Generally the collection does not really have many stories that will stay with you but are mostly enjoyable
