according to riparare ai danni degli anni ’80 ci vorrebbero nuove accise. Un ricarico fisso sui ricordi o un tanto al chilo sui rimpianti.
C’è gente, in line with dire, che da certe pettinature non ne è uscita più. Cinquantenni con l. a. sciatica da breakdance. Massaie in analisi dopo il taglio di treccine di Boy George.
Un’epoca che ha illuso anche loro: il Fuoricampo da un lato, Lei dall’altro. Oggi anonimi e lontani, con un matrimonio affossato dalle aspettative, figli a cui spiegare e monolocali da arredare. Negli ’80, invece, tutt’altra roba: erano Mister Glamour e pass over Anymore, ventotto anni in due nella gita a Napoli, sospiratori in bermuda da manuale del perfetto amore. Capitolo tot paragrafo enne: che incontro è senza il profumo del glicine a maggio. Che fuga è senza lo scatto liberatorio del lucchetto al motorino.
Alla high-quality, chissà, los angeles morale è che certe storie devono morire giovani. Come gli eroi, le farfalle, le soste del circo in paese. Perché a scorrerle dopo, cresciute di vent’anni, succede un po’ come con quei dischi ascoltati al contrario: sbuca l. a. profezia, il sottotesto, il messaggio ignorato. E tutta los angeles poesia, di colpo, diventa uno stridere di puntina fra i solchi.

His descriptions of small, soul-destroying bars will allure these boys who imagine their destiny is there. The evidence that no teenagers in Canada this present day get engaged at 19, that modern band circuit is ruled via medicinal drugs (not alcohol), that Dak's father's novel is not going to have come to fruition in just 12 months, and that band superstar often occurs over an issue of years (not months) will cross correct over the heads of the meant viewers who will consume Featherless Bipeds inspite of (or simply because of?) its dream success. not just does the hero do what he desires to do, he has a rocking sturdy time doing it, turns into recognized in a single day (even in tune terms), will get the lady and profits even his mom and dad' approval. In among, he catches a rapist, offers with tough (to say the least) bar audiences, jots down new songs on paper baggage at any time when proposal hits, and encourages his mom and dad to come to their artistic roots to color and write." — Joan Marshall CM

Un romanzo dalle mille sfaccettature: un libro intriso di grande letteratura, di amore according to l’arte e di un senso dell’umorismo pungente, un’ardita provocazione contro il tabù sessuale e los angeles distinzione fra legittimo e illegittimo, ma soprattutto un inno alla spensieratezza, al piacere, alla gioia di vivere.
