Vogliamo tutto di Nanni Balestrini: The books we loved in 2016 - The New Yorker

16.12.2016

Vogliamo tutto di Nanni Balestrini è tra i libri segnalati dal The New Yorker per il 2016. Qui e qui di seguito:
While my bias is clear on this one, since I penned the introduction, the long-awaited English-language release, from Verso, of Nanni Balestrini’s “We Want Everything” was, for me, a highlight of 2016, as a reader. The figure of the worker, the absurdity of work, the violence of rebellion: we would do well to study how it was that Balestrini made politics and fiction and art, all in once place. It’s one of the most compelling pieces of literature of the entire second half of the twentieth century. 
Also, it’s incredibly funny.
