Si va dal tono epico-lirico de "L'isola" del vincitore Mauro Barbetti, alla prosa essenziale ma efficace di "Doppio malto" di Ivan Sergio Castellani, alla scrittura autobiografico-gastronomica della "Valenciana" di Ilaria Testa, al viaggio evocativo-sensoriale di "Olio e Aceto" e di "Partire", in cui il mondo è riscoperto attraverso l'uso affinato dei sensi. Quasi tutti gli autori usano narrazioni in prima persona, al presente, anche quando riportano fatti lontani nel tempo e riescono, con poche efficaci pennellate, a disegnare personaggi in grado di coinvolgerci, di trascinarci nella loro storia.

Ray Bradbury s Fahrenheit 451 Book Description :

A Graphic Adaptation An HBO Original Movie starring Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek: Beyond), and Michael Shannon (The Shape of Water). An Eisner Award Nominee "Monday burn Millay, Wednesday Whitman, Friday Faulkner, burn 'em to ashes, then burn the ashes." For Guy Montag, a career fireman for whom kerosene is perfume, this is not just an official slogan. It is a mantra, a duty, a way of life in a tightly monitored world where thinking is dangerous and books are forbidden. In 1953, Ray Bradbury envisioned one of the world's most unforgettable dystopian futures, and in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, the artist Tim Hamilton translates this frightening modern masterpiece into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. As could onl...
