ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
"'L'invenzione occasionale' è composta da cinquantuno frammenti eterogenei di esperienze e di poetica, di intuizioni e di autobiografia. I titoli dei brevi testi modellano una mappa in movimento, definita di volta in volta dall'occhio del lettore. Attraversando soglie e frontiere diverse, rovesciando le stesse pertinenze di alto e basso, ogni tessera apre varchi tra contesti lontani, devia dal solco per meglio segnarne la traccia. Ed ecco che il racconto dell'insonnia porta all'urgenza di scrivere, i puntini sospensivi alla viltà, l'attrazione per un attore all'autonomia dell'opera d'arte, il trauma dei traslochi all'emancipazione delle donne, le piante alla smarginatura. La scrittura si definisce così come uno strumento paradossale, che afferma perentoriamente proprio quando sembra negare e divagare. Per incidere le apparenze dello stereotipo, per recuperare il vero occultato sotto la patina del verosimile, entra in scena un punto di vista nomade, al tempo stesso vicino e lontano dalla nostra vita quotidiana. Scavare, andare in profondità sotto questa superficie significa, in particolare, ripensare l'immaginario femminile come uno splendido graffito ancora parzialmente sepolto. Oltre il denso strato dell'immaginario neo-patriarcale, della retorica dell'emancipazione o dei buoni sentimenti: da lì si sprigiona 'L'invenzione occasionale'." (Tiziana de Rogatis)

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:

Bestselling author of My Brilliant Friend, Elena Ferrante was asked by The Guardian to pen a weekly column. There was no set theme to the column, it could be whatever Elena wished it to be. Starting on 20thJanuary 2018 and finishing on 12thJanuary 2019, for a full year, Elena wrote short pieces – a completely different process to writing a novel – based on questions she asked the editors at The Guardian to send her. The questions prompted Elena to write about mothers, friends, romance, movies, climate change and all manner of subjects. Incidental Inventions is the collection of these pieces, bound together complete with stunning illustrations by Andrea Ucini. These pieces, while short, give a fantastic insight into both the life of the author and your own life, as you are prompted to think of your own thoughts and feelings on the subject matter. As Ferrante said in her final column: ‘I have written as an author of novels, taking on matters that are important to me and that — if I have the will and the time — I’d like to develop within real narrative mechanisms.’ These ruminations hold what could be the seeds of possible future novels, but even in short article form, they are inspiring. In the introduction, Ferrante mentions that she thought about organising the articles in a way other than chronologically, to give more meaning to pieces, to create a more thoughtful order. However, they were left in the chronological order they had originally been published in, as their beauty and resonance comes in part from them being such incidental inventions. A must for all Ferrante fans.
