By Elizabeth Strout

In un angolo del continente nordamericano c’è Crosby, nel Maine: un luogo senza importanza che tuttavia, grazie alla sottile lama dello sguardo della Strout, diviene lo specchio di un mondo più ampio. Perché in questo piccolo villaggio affacciato sull’Oceano Atlantico c’è una donna che regge i fili delle storie, e delle vite, di tutti i suoi concittadini. È Olive Kitteridge, un’insegnante in pensione che, con implacabile intelligenza critica, osserva i segni del pace moltiplicarsi intorno a lei, tanto che poco o nulla le sfugge dell’animo di chi le sta accanto: un vecchio studente che ha smarrito il desiderio di vivere; Christopher, il figlio, tirannizzato dalla sua sensibilità spietata; un marito, Henry, che nella sua stessa fedeltà al matrimonio scopre una benedizione, e una croce. E ancora, le due sorelle Julie e Winnie: los angeles prima, abbandonata sull’altare ma non rassegnata a una vita di rinuncia, sul punto di fuggire ricorderà le parole illuminanti della sua ex insegnante: «Non abbiate paura della vostra popularity. Se ne avrete paura, sarete soltanto degli sciocchi qualsiasi».
Con dolore, e con disarmante onestà, in Olive Kitteridge si accampano i vari accenti e declinazioni della condizione umana – e i conflitti necessari according to fronteggiarli entrambi. E il fragile, sottile miracolo di un’altissima pagina di storia della letteratura, regalataci da una delle protagoniste della narrativa americana contemporanea, vincitrice, grazie a questo “romanzo in racconti”, del Premio Pulitzer 2009.
