I salici ciechi e la donna addormentata

Un dettaglio banale o un caso fortuito può far precipitare i protagonisti di queste storie in una misteriosa malinconia, come se in un gesto imprevisto indovinassero il lato oscuro, o forse magico, che la quotidianità nasconde. Alcuni, come il protagonista del Settimo uomo, cercano di superare, dopo molti anni, la perdita del loro migliore amico, altri sentono il bisogno di attraversare il giardino zoologico nei giorni in cui soffia un forte vento. Preparare da mangiare può essere una scusa perfetta per ignorare i problemi degli altri, come nell’Anno degli spaghetti; ma a volte è la dura realtà quella che si impone, è il caso della madre che in Hanalai Bay va a riprendersi il corpo del figlio surfista morto per l’attacco di uno squalo. Maestro nella creazione di atmosfere, Murakami introduce in queste storie non solo elementi fantastici e onirici, nei quali miscela con calcolata ambiguità il sonno e la veglia; ma, soprattutto, dà vita a personaggi indimenticabili, messi di fronte al dolore, all’amore, alla sessualità, vinti dalla bellezza o bisognosi di affetto e che nella loro vulnerabilità riconosciamo come nostri simili, nostri contemporanei.
