Read full description of the books La casa di mio padre:Figlio di un funzionario statale politicamente impegnato, con il quale vive un rapporto molto conflittuale, il protagonista di questo romanzo passa da un’infanzia relativamente agiata nella Turchia di inizio Novecento a un’adolescenza segnata dalla miseria più nera durante l’esilio della famiglia in Libano. Nella girandola di situazioni difficili, tragiche e talvolta comiche in cui viene coinvolto suo malgrado, il giovane eroe non perde mai l’entusiasmo per la vita e la speranza un un futuro migliore, dimostrando sempre un profondo sentimento di solidarietà per gli altri uomini, indipendentemente dall’estrazione sociale o dalla cultura di appartenenza. Pubblicato nel 1949 e ricco di elementi autobiografici, La casa di mio padre è il primo romanzo di Orhan Kemal, un maestro del realismo che ha descritto nei suoi libri la condizione dei poveri, degli operai, degli “uomini della strada” con un coinvolgimento e un senso del racconto che ne hanno fatto uno degli autori della letteratura turca più amati in patria e una miniera di ispirazione per il cinema.
