Le assaggiatrici

The new book for 2019 will be Le assaggiatrici. Read this beautiful novel with guidance of Marzia.

"Il mio corpo aveva assorbito il cibo del Führer, il cibo del Führer mi circolava nel sangue. Hitler era salvo. Io avevo di nuovo fame." Fino a dove è lecito spingersi per sopravvivere?
La prima volta che entra nella stanza in cui consumerà i prossimi pasti, Rosa Sauer è affamata. “Da anni avevamo fame e paura,” dice. Con lei ci sono altre nove donne di Gross-Partsch, un villaggio vicino alla Tana del Lupo, il quartier generale di Hitler. Quando le SS ordinano: “Mangiate”, davanti al piatto traboccante è la fame ad avere la meglio. Subito dopo, però, prevale la paura: le assaggiatrici devono restare un’ora sotto osservazione, affinché le guardie si accertino che il cibo da servire al Führer non sia avvelenato.
Nell’ambiente chiuso della mensa forzata, fra le giovani donne s’intrecciano alleanze, amicizie e rivalità sotterranee.
Ispirandosi alla storia vera di Margot Wölk (assaggiatrice di Hitler nella caserma di Krausendorf), racconta la vicenda eccezionale di una donna in trappola, fragile di fronte alla violenza della Storia, forte dei desideri della giovinezza.

Un libro meraviglioso, vincitore - tra gli altri premi - anche del Premio Campiello, del Premio Minerva ed eletto Libro dell'Anno dai gruppi di lettura di Fahrenheit Radio 3.
