(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 15 – SELVAGGIA LUCARELLI, CREPACUORE (RIZZOLI, PP 228, EURO 17.00). Selvaggia Lucarelli courageously tells how devastating emotional dependence can be in ‘Crepacuore’ which arrives in bookstores on November 16th for Rizzoli.
“There are stories like certain hanging paintings: everyone sees them as crooked, except the two inhabitants of the house. Stories that have nothing to do with happiness, and above all, with love” says the journalist who has dedicated to emotional addictions the ‘Just Me’ podcast for Choramedia which has been downloaded by a million people. “When we weren’t together I felt a strange emotional disorder, a kind of fever, of thirst that I had to quench. I lived my days without him as an interval, a pause in existence. I would turn off, waiting to be rekindled when I saw him again. . I had just become a young drug addict, convinced, on the contrary, that I had filled that hopelessly hollow area of my existence “. This is how Lucarelli describes the beginnings of a relationship that lasted four years in which nothing, in her life, had a chance: from work to friends, the obsession with a story that had no chance to function, slowly, like a weed fungus. , has affected everything around it. Even the love for her son, which ends up neglected between imprudent decisions and a suffocating abandonment syndrome: “Today, looking back, I still struggle to admit it, but my son’s happiness, even his safety, were the most important thing. only in those rare moments when I felt I had put my relationship safe. The only danger I felt as constant and looming was that of him leaving me for my obvious inadequacy. ” With courage, without making discounts especially to herself, in ‘Crepacuore’ she tells how an encounter between a man who sees nothing beyond himself and a woman who sees nothing beyond him can turn into a devastating emotional addiction from which the protagonist will emerge. only after hitting rock bottom. Only after he understood what that void was to be filled and why did he cultivate the destructive hope that someone could fill it. (HANDLE).
