Winner of the 1974 National Book Award “A screaming comes across the sky. . .” A few months after the Germans’ secret V-2 rocket bombs begin falling on London, British Intelligence discovers that a map of the city pinpointing the sexual conquests of one Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop, U.S. Army, corresponds identically to a map showing the V-2 impact sites. The implications of this discovery will launch Slothrop on an amazing journey across war-torn Europe, fleeing an international cabal of military-industrial superpowers, in search of the mysterious Rocket 00000, through a wildly comic extravaganza that has been hailed in The New Republic as “the most profound and accomplished American novel since the end of World War II.”

Nel paesaggio mediatico contemporaneo il tragico è stato sostituito dall’osceno. Il trionfo dell’oscenità di massa sull’arte tragica rende progressivamente impossibile una rappresentazione pietosa, partecipe e catartica della sofferenza umana. Questo profondo rivolgimento culturale precipitò negli ultimi decenni del Novecento. Mai come a partire da quel momento le occasioni di assistere allo spettacolo della sofferenza altrui sarebbero state tanto numerose, quotidiane, immediate. In un primo momento ce ne sentimmo travolti. Ben presto, però, l’uomo che abitava il mediascape di fine millennio si trasformò in un animale anfibio, capace di vivere simultaneamente in due ambienti profondamente diversi: all’asciutto del proprio mondo reale, pacifico e protetto ma anche immerso nella palude insanguinata da vittime di apocalissi lontane. La nostra pelle squamata si sarebbe presto dimostrata perfettamente impermeabile a entrambi gli ambienti. Qualsiasi tragedia altrui ci sarebbe scivolata addosso. Analizzando e comparando romanzi, film, fotografie e televisione, questi saggi di Scurati scavano sotto il fasullo senso umanitario di una società gaudente, ludica, stupidamente euforica, arrogantemente dimentica dell’angoscia del morire, una cultura che nella panacea della visibilità elettronica s’illude di poter mettere a morte la morte, di potersi emancipare dal funereo, luttuoso lavoro di sopravvivenza attraverso l’immagine, quel lavoro iniziato da nostri progenitori, millenni or sono, in un mondo popolato da ombre di belve e di avi defunti.

One golden family. One fateful summer. Four lives changed forever. Amber Alton knows that the hours pass differently at Black Rabbit Hall, her London family's country estate where no two clocks read the same. Summers there are perfect, timeless. Not much ever happens. Until, one stormy evening in 1968, it does. The idyllic world of the four Alton children is shattered. Fiercely bonded by the tragic events, they grow up fast. But when a glamorous stranger arrives, these loyalties are tested. Forbidden passions simmer. And another catastrophe looms... Decades later, Lorna and her fiancé wind their way through the countryside searching for a wedding venue. Lorna is drawn to a beautiful crumbling old house she hazily remembers from her childhood, feels a bond she does not understand. When she finds a disturbing message carved into an old oak tree by one of the Alton children, she begins to realise that Black Rabbit Hall's secret history is as dark and tangled as its woods, and that, much like her own past, it must be brought into the light. A thrilling spiral into the hearts of two women separated by decades but inescapably linked by Black Rabbit Hall. A story of forgotten childhood and broken dreams, secrets and heartache, and the strength of a family's love.
