Petros Markaris: Poems and crimes

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 30 aprile 2020

Collana gli Squali, trad. Andrea Di Gregorio, pp. 40, euro 1.99 (La Nave di Teseo editore) Due indagini del commissario Kostas Charitos. Due storie in bilico tra il giallo e la denuncia sociale nello stile inconfondibile di Petros Markaris. In un’Atene in cui si mescolano la storia gloriosa e il presente segnato dalle disuguaglianze, il commissario Charitos indaga sulla morte violenta di un affermato regista dopo una notte di danze tradizionali al suono del rebetiko. Cosa faresti con la vincita per aver fatto 13 alla schedina? Per un immigrato dal Sudan che serve souvlaki in un ristorantino di Atene, anche una piccola somma può cambiare la vita, in meglio o in peggio.

Why Rage Might Be Good for Your Writing Career

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 26 aprile 2016

Theresa Raganby Lisa Wogan. For the first 30 years of her life, bestselling author Theresa Ragan didn’t think of herself as a writer. Although she loved writing school papers and poems when she was young, it’s only when looking back that she sees these as signs of her true calling.She wasn’t even much of a reader until her sister gave her A Knight in Shining Armor, a romance novel by Jude Deveraux. Ragan was on a leave of absence from her job as a legal secretary, pregnant with her youngest daughter. “The escapism I experienced was so incredible,” she says. “I started writing that day and I never stopped.” Eventually, because of the high cost of day care, Ragan stayed home with her four children. She wrote stories, notes, and character sketches in longhand on legal pads, early in the morning or late at night while the kids slept. She wrote in her car while waiting for school to let out. Sometimes she could grab a half-hour before dinner. In their small house in Lafayette, California, she learned how to tune out noise. She kept a tape recorder on her nightstand so she wouldn’t lose any of the ideas that were burbling up constantly.Still, there was never enough time. “Then I had an epiphany,” she says. “I realized I had to give up ‘Oprah.’ I needed that hour.” After five years, Ragan completed 50 pages of what would become Return of the Rose, a time-travel romance that toggles between medieval England and 1980s United States. She joined Romance Writers of America (RWA) and attended conferences. One of her sisters gave her $100 to help cover expenses, and Ragan shared a room with three strangers to save money. Eventually, Ragan submitted a complete manuscript to a New York publisher. “I was excited by the first rejection,” she says. “I thought, ‘OK, I’m on my way.’” She wrote another time-travel romance and continued to submit to publishers. The rejection notices—eventually in the hundreds—piled up. She kept resetting her goals. She told herself she needed to find a publisher by the time she was 40, then by 45, then by 50. “I knew in my heart that I was a writer when nothing could stop me.” (photo: Theresa Ragan)
