OTHER PEOPLE’S PLACES. Joe R. Lansdale Notebooks in Puglia
OTHER PEOPLE’S PLACES. Joe R. Lansdale’s travel notebooks in Puglia is a kind of road movie in Puglia, a region of the south of Italy.
In 1948 Arthur Miller traveled in Puglia starting from Monte Sant’Angelo. There he wrote a novel published in Harper’s Magazine in 1952. Lansdale starts from the same place in Puglia.
As Levy Strauss told “The Sad Tropics” in his book “A World on the Wane”, today Lansdale, an American writer that knows what “to live on the border” means, in Italy discovers “another south of the world”, a sad world because of the destruction of the nature in only twenty years, a breath of the history. But Lansdale also discovers an happy south. An happy south that resists to the models of consumerism that destroys every form of cultures.
