Anyway, if you like the books of Baricco you will have that all of his art is condensed in the hundred pages of this monologe: the sea, the music, the inner adventure, the magic...
The language is amazingly simple it gives the impression that writting is easy... until you try.
The plot is simple: Novecento was born and abandoned in a boat crossing the Atlantic. The crew adopted him and he spent there all his life, refusing to ever set foot on the land. On the boat he learnt to play piano and became the biggest pianinst of his time. Or at least is what the people that heard him claim. Another pianist, the so-called "father of the jazz" will try to prove them wrong by defying Novecento in a musical duel.
Questo monologo e una assoluta meraviglia, pieno di magia, di innocencia ed allo stesso tempo pieno di profondezza. Baricco, sei un grande!!! Ancora ho un nudo in golla quando penso a Novecento ed e gia anni che lo ho letto. Ho sempre un "novecento" a mano per donarlo a quelli che voglio bene.
This is what life is about - tiny special moments that let us feel the eternity in all its glory.
I am lucky to be able to read many languages so i have copies of it in German, Italian and French. I have given many copies of this book to people i love. Unfortunately i have many "english speaking only" friends and grieve for the fact that they cannot read this wonderful book.
I would like to co-appeal with the first reviewer to have someone publish this book in english.
