Cabaret Biarritz (Italian Edition) by José C. Vales,Silvia Sichel

By José C. Vales,Silvia Sichel

Nella Parigi del 1938, Philippe Fourac è il direttore e proprietario de los angeles Fortune, una casa editrice dai toni popolari che si rivolge principalmente a un pubblico di signore benestanti. Nemico degli autori avanguardistici e dei tomi arcigni «che puzzano di letteratura», Fourac è alla ricerca costante di fatti e argomenti i cui aspetti «più truculenti, sanguinari e morbosi» possano essere trasformati, da una buona penna, in un romanzo di successo. Quando conosce Georges Miet, un giovane scrittore zoppo, quasi cieco e con più pulci dei ratti di Saint-Germain, il direttore capisce immediatamente che quel ragazzo malconcio è disposto a fare qualunque cosa pur di guadagnarsi da vivere con los angeles scrittura. E così nasce il progetto «Cabaret Biarritz».
Fourac incarica Miet di scrivere un romanzo «serio ma appetibile» sui drammatici fatti che una decina d’anni prima, precisamente nell’estate del 1925, scossero l’elegante località turistica di Biarritz, nel sud della Francia. Gli articoli di cronaca dell’epoca pubblicati su l. a. Petite Gironde parlavano del corpo di una donna rinvenuto con una caviglia incastrata in un anello d’ormeggio del porto. Un caso rubricato dalla polizia tra i soliti tragici incidenti di «una notte di bagordi in Côte Basque».
Arrivato a Biarritz, Miet intervista gli amici e i conoscenti della vittima, dopodiché passa al setaccio le maliziose ballerine del cabaret Les Sirènes, i ricchi vacanzieri di stanza al Casinò Bellevue, e una schiera pressoché infinita di governanti, gioiellieri, lanciatori di coltelli, artisti omosessuali e becchini. Più le dichiarazioni aumentano, tuttavia, più il mistero si infittisce.
Quando scopre che i cadaveri di altre due persone erano già stati rinvenuti in circostanze molto simili alla prima vittima, los angeles polizia inizia a pedinarlo e il suo editore gli intima di tornare a Parigi. Solo, impaurito e senza il becco di unquattrino, Miet è convinto che tre delle persone che ha intervistato – il giornalista locale conosciuto come «Vilko», il fotografo Marcel Galet e l’aristocratica e seducente Beatrix Ross – sappiano molto più di quello che gli hanno raccontato. Il problema è inventarsi un modo in keeping with convincerli a parlare.
Vincitore del Premio Nadal 2015, Cabaret Biarritz è un affresco letterario divertentissimo, polifonico e stravagante. «Una commedia che mescola magistralmente indagine criminale e parodia sociale» (El País) e che regala ai lettori l’inedito ma fedele ritratto della Francia degli anni Venti: una terra di segreti, frivolezze mondane e feste che sembrano uscite dalle pagine de Il grande Gatsby.

Romanzo vincitoredel Premio Nadal 2015.
