Les désamoureux (Les Lys Bleu éditions 2019, traduit par Félicia Lignon)

Le problème de l’abandon est qu’il n’est jamais clair qui est celui qui abandonne et qui est celui qui est abandonné.

ISBN: 978-2378779269

« L’énergie que Frank Iodice déploie pour écrire est presque palpable. La recherche de l’originalité se voit dans l’emploi de métaphores jamais encore entendues ailleurs, utilisées par les protagonistes de manière tout à fait naturelle. La facilité avec laquelle il prend un peu des langues qu’il connaît pour tout réemployer donne un sens de jeu, de divertissement et de renouveau. Pour cela, ce sont des romans et nouvelles qu’on ne peut pas ne pas aimer ! » Stéphan Lambadaris,  LES MOUTONS ÉLECTRIQUES

Nice, années ‘80. Antonino Bellofiore, fils d’immigrés siciliens, est un jeune flic porteur de chaussettes dépareillées, qui conduit une Chevrolet vert bouteille comme on conduit une moto. Il vit avec Anisette, jeune étudiante en psychologie amoureuse, au cou délicat et aérien.

Bellofiore passe ses nuits à étudier la forme vague du plafond, hanté par le corps lumineux et évanescent qui repose à ses côtés et qu’il ne sait pas étreindre. Le jour, il enquête sur de mystérieuses cartes postales arrivées avec trente ans de retard et adressées à son père qui les a abandonnés lui et sa mère, lorsqu’il avait dix ans.

Pendant ce temps-là, Anisette approfondit son analyse du désamour sous la direction du Docteur Fontaine, jeune psychologue en prêt de Paris.

Bellofiore parviendra-t-il à remonter les fils de son passé pour démasquer le mystère de ces trois cartes postales et du trafic qui semble y être associé ? Réussira-t-il à se libérer de cette Anisette, liseuse de cœur et voleuse de pensées ? ou à enfin l’aimer tout simplement ?

Odette is a six years old girl. She is living in a foster home in the south of France when she meets a night custodian and decides he should be her father. To look for him, Odette escapes with the help of an old Argentinian prostitute, Signorina Rosario Rossi, who has quite an original philosophy of life, and her ex-boyfriend, don Vito Palladino, an irreverent parish priest… A story about the meaning of our place in the world, a world in which an idiot can turn out to be more brilliant than anyone else.

This publication has no financial ties. The book is being distributed free to European and American students (Middle Schools & High Schools) during a series of conferences and workshops organized by Articoli Liberi and PRA Publishing.

Brief Dialogue on Happiness

“I would like to thank the ex-President José Pepe Mujica, for letting me use excerpts from his public speeches, as well as from our conversation, which occurred in a bar in Montevideo on April 2014.
This story was created for young minds. My first purpose was to show them the importance of being free in the hope to be, one day, people and politicians better than us. For adults, I turn to an ancient rule that has existed since the time when books began to exist. In other words, every page hides numerous meanings. Any reader, any critic, can interpret them as he wishes, because, in the end, in both literature and in our lives, only those who wants to understand will understand.
It was hard to keep for me to keep all the stories from arising while I went on with the faithful narration of this speech, half real and half not, as I planned to do before leaving for Uruguay. However, due to the illness I suffer, a rare form of obstinacy that constantly forces me to finish what I have started, I could not do it any another way.”

Visit Articoli Liberi website. They help me distribute my books amid the students.

10.000 copies of Brief Dialogue on Happiness have been donated to Italian and French high-school students. The English version was presented at Florida State University, Augusta University, and SAMLA National Convention. I am indebted to Professors Irene Zanini Cordi, Lisa Wakamiya and Barbara Hamby (Florida State University) for their precious advice which helped me a lot in my writings.

This is a story about happiness. I realized that happiness is the only human passion which will never perish under the modern politics of hate and obsessive competition.
