“When one finds the courage to look beyond the surface, even a name makes one reflect on the tension between destiny and the choices that can transform one’s existence. Ada, the protagonist of this novel, is on a journey and, along the way, she accompanies us into her inner world as the episodes of her life emerge, distinct in the text, from two different verbal tenses, which mark the story by bringing out, little by little, feelings and personal events. Perhaps Ada is not the only one to travel: the two stories (present and past) often intersect with the detailed description of places and places and at the same time it seems to us that we are walking down those streets and identifying ourselves with the flow of the woman’s thoughts. . The Author knows well how to extricate herself in a multifaceted material, which also reveals social implications of great relevance, reaching a definitely unexpected ending and recalling a sort of mise en abîme with the game of mirrors created, which returns rhythm and gives proof of stylistic mastery and fiction. “
Annella Prisco, writer, coordinator and cultural manager, is a literary critic and vice president of the “Michele Prisco” Study Center named after her father, author of several successful novels, winner of the Strega Prize in 1966 with “A spiral of fog” , the centenary of which was celebrated in 2020 by a special national committee.
