Read full description of the books Bianchi:

Con questa superba raccolta di racconti Norman Rush tratteggia una galleria di personaggi che mettono in scena tic, ossessioni e passioni che caratterizzano il rapporto tra bianchi e neri. Che siano americani, inglesi oppure olandesi, i bianchi di Rush non sanno esattamente perché si trovino in Africa. La loro incertezza gli fa compiere cose orribili. Come Carl, il quale, andato fuori di testa per colpa del continuo abbaiare dei cani del vicino, si avvicina timidamente alla stregoneria dei nativi per tirarsene fuori nel momento peggiore. O come Ione, che insegue una carriera di “seduttore” (“Una seduttrice era qualcuno che era semplicemente seducente e avrebbe potuto oppure no essere premiata da una conquista. Un seduttore invece è un professionista”) mentre il marito dentista si difende dalle generose avances della cuoca africana. Divertente, malinconico, profondamente empatico, raffinato e senza sbavature, Bianchi è una magnifica raccolta di racconti che conferma la grandezza letteraria di uno dei maggiori autori americani contemporanei.

Ebook Bianchi read Online! Norman Rush (born October 24, 1933 in Oakland, California) is an American novelist whose introspective novels and short stories are set in Botswana in the 1980s. He is the son of Roger and Leslie (Chesse) Rush. He was the recipient of the 1991 National Book Award and the 1992 Irish Times/Aer Lingus International Fiction Prize for his novel Mating.

Rush was born in San Francisco and graduated from Swarthmore College in 1956. After working for fifteen years as a book dealer, he changed careers to become a teacher and found he had more time to write. He submitted a short story about his teaching experiences to The New Yorker, and it was published in 1978.

Rush and his wife worked as co-workers for the Peace Corps in Botswana from 1978 to 1983, which provided material for a collection of short stories he published as Whites in 1986, and for which he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His Botswana experience was also used in his first novel, Mating, which won a National Book Award for fiction in 1991, and in his second novel, Mortals.
