☯ Full Synopsis : "Joshua Ferris's The Unnamed has been hailed as 'the first great book of the decade' (GQ). In an America gone awry with strange weather, New York lawyer Tim Farnsworth suffers a peculiar affliction: the inability to stop walking. While his wife, Jane, struggles to keep their family together in the face of the unfathomable, Tim alone must battle to survive pitiless surroundings, encounters with hostile strangers, and the unrelenting demands of his own body. These challenges force Tim to ask life's most pressing questions, which he answers in a final return on foot across country to reunite with his wife and daughter. Stripped of all defences, and the sense of hope that lies at the very heart of the American dream, Farnsworth is compelled to confront the terrifying reality of what it is to be a human being. 'A writer almost uniquely in tune with modern life . . . Ferris's flashes of brilliance are many' Evening Standard 'Original, affecting. An almost unbearable love story, between remissions of intense connection and the human inevitability of parting, between the haven of marriage and all that lies beyond' Observer 'A stunner, an unnerving portrait of a man stripped of civilization's defenses' New Yorker Joshua Ferris was born in Illinois in 1974. He is the author of Then We Came to the End (2007), which was nominated for the National Book Award and longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, and the highly acclaimed The Unnamed. In 2010 he was selected for the New Yorker's prestigious '20 under 40' list. His most recent novel, To Rise Again at a Decent Hour, was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014 and the Dylan Thomas Prize 2014. He lives in New York."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts. Every office is a family of sorts, and the ad agency Joshua Ferris brilliantly depicts in his debut novel is family at its strangest and best, coping with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks. With a demon's eye for the details that make life worth noticing, Joshua Ferris tells a true and funny story about survival in life's strangest environment--the one we pretend is normal five days a week."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, this big, brilliant, profoundly observed novel by National Book Award Finalist Joshua Ferris explores the absurdities of modern life and one man's search for meaning. Paul O'Rourke is a man made of contradictions: he loves the world, but doesn't know how to live in it. He's a Luddite addicted to his iPhone, a dentist with a nicotine habit, a rabid Red Sox fan devastated by their victories, and an atheist not quite willing to let go of God. Then someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name. What begins as an outrageous violation of his privacy soon becomes something more soul-frightening: the possibility that the online "Paul" might be a better version of the real thing. As Paul's quest to learn why his identity has been stolen deepens, he is forced to confront his troubled past and his uncertain future in a life disturbingly split between the real and the virtual. At once laugh-out-loud funny about the absurdities of the modern world, and indelibly profound about the eternal questions of the meaning of life, love and truth, TO RISE AGAIN AT A DECENT HOUR is a deeply moving and constantly surprising tour de force."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "'He reflected in future retrospect on the evening and foretold every gesture, every word. "I can't do it," he said. "I can predict everything that will happen from the moment they arrive to the little kiss on the cheek goodbye and I just can't goddamn do it."' The Dinner Party immerses us in the comic and strange realities of modern life, as we journey through the lives of the unlovable, the unloved, and those who love too much: Jack, who nervously tries to befriend the surly removal man by buying him a latte and a croissant; Sarah, who endlessly imagines how her evening would have been better had she only chosen a different restaurant; Joe, who spends a night alone at the office and surreptitiously starts to rearrange his colleagues' belongings. These are stories about the infinite possibilities of a person's life, from an agonizingly funny and original writer."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The acclaimed National Book Award finalist—“one of the United States’ finest writers,” according to Joshua Ferris, “full of wit, humanity, and fearless curiosity”—now gives us a novel that will join the short list of classics about children caught up in the Holocaust. Aron, the narrator, is an engaging if peculiar and unhappy young boy whose family is driven by the German onslaught from the Polish countryside into Warsaw and slowly battered by deprivation, disease, and persecution. He and a handful of boys and girls risk their lives by scuttling around the ghetto to smuggle and trade contraband through the quarantine walls in hopes of keeping their fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters alive, hunted all the while by blackmailers and by Jewish, Polish, and German police, not to mention the Gestapo. When his family is finally stripped away from him, Aron is rescued by Janusz Korczak, a doctor renowned throughout prewar Europe as an advocate of children’s rights who, once the Nazis swept in, was put in charge of the Warsaw orphanage. Treblinka awaits them all, but does Aron manage to escape—as his mentor suspected he could—to spread word about the atrocities? Jim Shepard has masterfully made this child’s-eye view of the darkest history mesmerizing, sometimes comic despite all odds, truly heartbreaking, and even inspiring. Anyone who hears Aron’s voice will remember it forever. From the Hardcover edition."Article| Jim Shepard| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Tim è un uomo giovane e attraente, e il passare degli anni sembra avergli donato il fascino luminoso e intenso di un attore di teatro. La moglie Jane conserva intatto il suo amore per lui, e attraverso le piccole difficoltà di ogni giorno il loro matrimonio ha acquisito la forza di un vero legame, complice e sentimentale. Nonostante le lunghe ore passate in ufficio, Tim lavora con passione. È socio di un autorevole studio legale di Manhattan, e ciò che fa è importante per i colleghi e per se stesso. A casa, quando la figlia Becka si nasconde dietro la sua chitarra, con i capelli da rasta e un corpo che non ha ancora superato le rotondità paffute dellinfanzia, Tim riesce sempre a donarle le bugie oneste di un padre, convinto che la figlia sia la ragazza piú bella del mondo. Tim ama sua moglie, la propria famiglia, il lavoro, la sua casa. Ma un giorno Tim si alza ed esce. Esce dalla casa, dalla famiglia, dallufficio, dalla calda dimora degli affetti, dellamore, della sicurezza. Esce e inizia a camminare. Per non fermarsi mai piú. La sua è una malattia che lo spinge a mettersi in marcia senza potersi arrestare, perdendosi nei meandri della città, nelle periferie, nei sobborghi, nelle strade di campagna. Fino a quando, senza forze, come in trance, crolla e si addormenta. Per ritrovarsi privo di memoria in un luogo sconosciuto, e chiamare e implorare la moglie perché lo venga a recuperare. È una malattia senza nome, insinuante, che non lascia scampo. Non ci sono dottori, terapie, cure. Forse non esiste neppure, quella malattia, è solo un desiderio profondo e invincibile: lasciarsi indietro il fulgore soffocante e irresistibile della felicità. Un romanzo di bellezza abbagliante sul matrimonio e sulla famiglia, sulle forze imprevedibili della natura e del desiderio. La storia lancinante e commovente di una vita che si dà per scontata e di quello che accade quando tutto ciò che siamo viene improvvisamente gettato via."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "ABSTRACT: As a post-9/11 office novel, Joshua Ferris's Then We Came to the End effectively represents the contemporary American work novel's anxieties about violence, trauma, and loss—particularly the loss of the American Dream—and its consolations in humor and human community. The novel's distinctive first-person plural narration foregrounds Ferris's understanding of office workers' need for safety in numbers and for social connectedness, even while they hope that their individual achievements will be rewarded and save their jobs. The tension between the desire for individualism and also for group identity signals a shift in workplace fiction from earlier incarnations, reflecting the changed environment of the American office place. By focusing on the advertising business and its language manipulations, Ferris ultimately asks whether or not words—and work—can still matter or create meaning."Article| no defined| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Paul ORourke vive a New York in un appartamento su due livelli con vista sulla Brooklyn Promenade. Va a cena tre o quattro volte a settimana da chef che hanno parecchie stelle Michelin, infanzie trascorse nella valle del Rodano e show televisivi tutti loro. Si aggira in luoghi dove le scorte di vino, da sole, fannosembrare lImpero romano una zona depressa del Kansas. Ha uno studio di dentista che occupa metà del piano terra di un condominio dietro Park Avenue, la strada piú elegante del mondo, dove i portieri si vestono con tanto di guanti e berretto e aprono le porte ad anziane vedove con cagnolino. È capace di lavorare in cinque postazioni situate in cinque sale diverse, e di fare, cosí, soldi a palate. Tifa per i Red Sox che, nel 2004, soffiarono persino il titolo agli Yankees e vinsero le World Series. In una sola estate, per due mesi, ha anche profuso tutte le sue energie migliori nel golf. E, tuttavia, Paul ORourke ha un grave problema: tutte queste cose che racchiudono la sua vita gli appaiono soltanto parti. E le parti e qui viene la fregatura non sono tutto. Uno studio di dentista di successo non è tutto, i Red Sox, il lavoro, lo svago, gli chef, niente può essere veramente tutto, se ciascuna cosa riesce a occupare perfettamente il tempo soltanto per un certo periodo. Persino Connie, la ragazza con cui ha avuto unintensa relazione, non può essere tutto. Ipocrita come tutte le anime poetiche, Connie in America non metterebbe mai piede in una chiesa, ma in Europa si precipita subito dalla pista dellaeroporto al transetto, come se il Dio di Dante e di Bach non aspettasse che il suo arrivo da secoli. Paul ORourke avrebbe lassoluta certezza di aver sprecato la sua vita, se una serie inaspettata di eventi non mutasse radicalmente il corso della sua insignificante esistenza, destinata a trascinarsi nellabisso come un pallina da golf sullorlo della buca. Un giorno capita nel suo studio un tipo bizzarro che, dopo essersi fatto estrarre un dente rovinato da una maldestra otturazione, gli sussurra con lalito acre da anestetico: «Sono un ulm, e lo è anche lei!». Qualche tempo dopo qualcuno crea un sito web del suo studio, completo di profili di tutti i suoi collaboratori e di una sua biografia colma di citazioni tratte dallAntico Testamento. E lo «sputtanamento online» appare tuttaltro che tale. Chi parla a nome del «Dottor Paul C. ORourke, medico dentista», inviando messaggi sui blog e sulle bacheche facebook di mezzo mondo, lo fa non con idiozie inframmezzate da incomprensibili geroglifici, ma con pensieri profondi sullo stato presente e sulle cose ultime del mondo. Svegliamoci pure, ma a unora decente, splendida conferma del talento dellautore di E poi siamo arrivati alla fine, è una delle opere piú attese sulla scena letteraria internazionale, «il primo grande romanzo sul furto didentità in rete». (Yuko Shimizo, GQ) «Svegliamoci pure, ma a unora decente è meravigliosamente scritto. È divertente, provocatorio e toccante Vi sono dei libri che catturano per la forza della visione del mondo dellautore. Questo è uno di quei libri». Stephen King «La prosa di Ferris è impertinente, stravagante e spaventosamente bella». The New Yorker «Joshua Ferris ha saputo coinvolgere e sedurre i lettori giovani [...] e i letterati che soppesano le virgole e sanno quando è il caso di inchinarsi al cervello unito alla buona scrittura». Corriere della Sera «Un giovane narratore che ama in egual misura la cultura classica e quella popolare, e concentra il proprio sforzo creativo sulla sincerità e lumanità dei suoi personaggi». la Repubblica «Joshua Ferris è un vero scrittore, perché anche la sua scrittura racconta».

☯ Full Synopsis : "Paul O’Rourke est un dentiste hors-pair, un New-Yorkais qui entretient avec sa ville des rapports ambigus, un athée convaincu, un supporter désenchanté des Red Sox, et grand amateur de mokaccino. Et pourtant il est hors du monde moderne. Son métier, certes, occupe ses journées, mais ses nuits ne sont qu’une succession de regrets ; il ressasse les erreurs qu’il a commises avec Connie, son ex-petite amie (qui est également l’une de ses employées) et, tour à tour, vitupère ou s’émerveille devant l’optimisme du reste de l’humanité. Ainsi va sa vie, jusqu’à ce que quelqu’un se fasse passer pour lui sur le web. Impuissant, Paul O’Rourke voit, avec horreur, paraître en son nom un site internet, une page Facebook et un compte Twitter, qui semblent vouloir faire l’apologie d’une religion ancienne tombée dans l’oubli. Mais cette imposture on line, bientôt, ne se contente plus d’être une simple et odieuse atteinte sa vie privée. C’est son âme même qui se retrouve en danger, car son double numérique est peut-être bien meilleur que sa version de chair et de sang. Ce nouveau roman de Joshua Ferris, vertigineux d’inventions, emprunt d’un humour caustique, s’attaque aux trois fondamentaux de notre existence moderne : le sens de la vie, l’inéluctabilité de la mort, et la nécessité d’avoir une bonne hygiène dentaire.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Paul O'Rourke má slušnou zubařskou praxi a k ní ještě slušnější krizi středního věku. Anebo, řečeno jednodušeji, neví, co sám se sebou: nesnáší stroje a přístroje, ale miluje svůj iPhone; zuřivě fandí Red Sox, ale každé jejich vítězství mu způsobí depresi; rád by byl ateistou, ale pořád se té víry nějak ne a ne pustit. A když si někdo přisvojí jeho totožnost a začne si jeho jménem zakládat pohoršující webové stránky a účty na Facebooku a Twiteru, najednou mu přestane být jasné, kdo vlastně je. A pátrání po podvodníkovi ho postaví před otřesnou otázku, jestli to vlastně ten padouch nevzal za lepší konec, než on sám, jestli "ten druhý", vlastně není lepší Paul O'Rourke než on. Třetí román amerického autora (1974), který se v posledních letech prosazuje jako jeden z nejvýraznějších literárních hlasů své generace."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."
