9780872864269: Head Above Water (City Lights Italian Voices)

Italian writer Cardo Maraini is a cauldron of contradictions. Plagued by guilt over the drowning of his younger brother, he is strangely terrified by life. When the Norwegian woman he loves becomes pregnant, he plunges into a comically disastrous liaison, fleeing from commitment and responsibility. He tries to escape through writing about his youth, reliving erotic encounters and the political activism of Italy in the 1960s. When he is finally forced to confront his past and his evasions, he learns to face his fear and finds that there are second chances after all.

Stefano Bortolussi is an Italian novelist, critic, translator, and poet. He also writes a monthly column for Italian Esquire and works frequently in theater and film.

About the Author:

From Booklist:

Cardo Mariano is a successful Italian writer afflicted with a typical male problem--fear of commitment. When Sol, Cardo's pregnant lover, uncovers his dalliance with another woman, she makes the decision to return to Norway while Cardo remains in Italy to confront his issues. The guilt of his drowned brother has shaped his psyche since childhood and seems to be the source of his obsessive-compulsive behavior--which persists despite years of therapy. Cardo sorts out his past by writing--first through e-mails to Sol, then through an upcoming novel about the political activism of Italy in the 1970s, loosely based on his own childhood. As his past surges forward into the present, he discovers the fate of his long-lost father, and upon returning to Sol, he finds the forgiveness and the stability he has always sought. This is an extremely engaging story about fear and longing, about creating a new life from the ashes of an old one, revealing that the answers we seek are often right in front of us. Michael Spinella
