Talee and the Fallen Object Synopsis: One early Saturday morning, Talee has nothing to do. I mean nothing at all. So she eats a puffy muffin and decides to read one of her favorite books, Captain Jewel and the Lost City Treasure. Just when she’s about to start chapter three, out of the corner of her eye she sees a mail flyer drop something from a bag. It falls through the air and lands on one of the smaller floating landmasses surrounding her family’s home. A bag of treasure! She thinks as she looks out the window. But is it?

“Tante cure ma soprattutto tanto tempo”, era questa, in breve, la filosofia di mamma sul giardinaggio. Questo uno dei moniti di Lobbi, protagonista del romanzo “Rosa Candida”, di Audur Ava Ólafsdóttir [edito da Einaudi, tradotto da Stefano Rosatti] Storia delicata e seducente, di Lobbi che raccoglie le talee di rosa candida della serra che la mamma ha costruito con cura, amore e audacia nella fredda, arida e silenziosa Islanda, e dopo la sua tragica morte in un incidente, le porta via. Le porta via per ripiantarle in un monastero, al cui interno si conservava il più pregiato giardino di rose di tutta Europa, in un angolo di Europa che potrebbe essere dovunque. Qui Lobbi trova tanto sole, un monaco esperto di lingue e film in tutte le lingue, e una via per la felicità. Trova il tempo. E trova il modo di aver cura di se stesso. Romanzo di formazione, nel modo meno convenzionale e meno europeo. Ha origine dal viaggio, che assomiglia a una fuga alla ricerca di una non meglio definita felicità. La formazione, la crescita del giovane protagonista, si forgia sul costante esercizio alla pazienza, di fronte alle piccole disavventure, che altro non sono se non gli strani “inattesi” della vita. La malattia, prima, in uno sconosciuto ospedale di una capitale europea. L’arrivo, poi, dopo l'apparente ritrovamento della quieta, della figlia Flora Sol, e della madre della figlia, Anna, alla ricerca di un angolo di tepore umano, contro la solitudine. Alla fine, sotto un sole straniero e una luminosità accogliente, qualcosa si colma, il giardino torna rigoglioso, il ragazzo si fa uomo in una dimensione più piena.

Bruxa: Area from/nationality: Portugal. A female vampire, the Bruxa is normally transformed into vampiric form by witchcraft. She leaves her home at night in the form of a bird and her most frequent activity is tormenting weary lost travelers. She also assumes the form of other animals, like a rat, ant or wolf. Due to their animal transformations, bruxsa are often associated with the lobishmen, which are Portuguese werewolves. She is said to appear as a beautiful maiden and leads a normal human life by day, bearing children, which in general become her regular form of food. She is said to be impossible to kill. She sucks the blood of children, and was a popular excuse to murder women during the Inquisition. It was believed that a bruxsa’s powers were confined to the hours from midnight to 2:00 in the morning. She got her powers from Satan, who she worshipped together with others of her kind. The bruxsa would gather at crossroads on Tuesdays and Fridays to get their worship on, once finished they gained even more evil powers. They’re invincible, but you can protect your children by amulets made of steel and iron. On top of that, people would sew garlic into their kid’s clothing, or, they would put a steel nail in the ground and pair of scissors under their pillow to keep the bruxsa away. Also a handful of incantations that can be spoken to ward of this vampire. If a bruxsa had already killed a child, the mother could hurt it by boiling her child’s clothes while stabbing them with a sharp instrument. The vampire would supposedly feel the jabs on her own body, and would be forced to come and beg for mercy.
