La biblioteca di Ravel
An enigmatic library on a tropical island, a poet on the verge of a nervous breakdown, a strange language that disappears in an equally mysterious way, threats disguised as dreams, a man who sleeps when the other is awake and vice versa, a pathetic case of an extreme superstition regarding the number thirteen that destroys the career of a brilliant academic, the forgetfulness of an impossible love. In the stories of Stefanos Stavridis, here in his debut in Italian, the unknown is always lurking, offering the reader at every moment the opportunity to appreciate the surprising mask of undisturbed reality.
Stefanos Stavridis was born in Larnaca in 1972. He has a degree in Italian language and literature and specialized in librarianship in Austin, Texas. He is the author of three collections of verses and two collections of short stories. In 1999 he received the Cypriot National Prize for the best new poet. He lives in Nicosia and works as a librarian at the University of Cyprus.
