Discussion | Pages Ripped Out of My Skin: Pier Vittorio Tondelli. The Man, His Quest, His Works (in-person and online)


Author Fr. Antonio Spadaro, Undersecretary of the Vatican Dicastery for Culture and Education, in conversation with Alessandro Giammei of Yale University. The event will be in English. To wander the paths within the works of Pier Vittorio Tondelli means to penetrate a tender and dramatic life experience. The author of Altri libertini and Camere separate, born in Correggio in 1955 and who died only 36 years later of AIDS-related illnesses, embraces a strong idea of literature as an act of "keeping vigil over the life of the world and recounting it." In particular, in his mature works, Tondelli fully reveals a deep reflexion on the sense of extremes, of anguish, and of abandonment in a period marked by a gradual distrust in political institutions - during the 1970s - and by the dive into the vortex of cultural and mediatic postmodernism of the "grand stuttering serail." Antonio Spadaro, after decades of studying the author's works and books collected in his family library, returns to the reader the full humanity of Tondelli and all the richness of his spiritual and existential journey.

Book Club | Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 by Cho Nam-Joo (in-person and online)


One of the most notable novels of the year, hailed by both critics and K-pop stars alike, Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 follows one woman’s psychic deterioration in the face of rampant misogyny. In a tidy apartment on the outskirts of Seoul, millennial “everywoman” Kim Jiyoung spends her days caring for her infant daughter. But strange symptoms appear: Jiyoung begins to impersonate the voices of other women, dead and alive. As she plunges deeper into this psychosis, her concerned husband sends her to a psychiatrist. Jiyoung narrates her story to this doctor—from her birth to parents who expected a son to elementary school teachers who policed girls’ outfits to male coworkers who installed hidden cameras in women’s restrooms. But can her psychiatrist cure her, or even discover what truly ails her?
