Paolo Maurensig's first novel, The Lneberg version, was once hailed all over the world as an instantaneous vintage. Now Canone Inverso-the vintage story of the doppelgänger reimagined-has proven Maurensig's attractiveness as a contemporary master.

In an remoted Austrian song university within the Nineteen Thirties, boys, each one being affected by the load of expertise and the curse of obsession, turn into locked in a fancy friendship. the most important to their bond lies within the mystery of an attractive, surprisingly carved violin. As their lives spread during the so much violent many years of this century, the 2 develop into partners, opponents, and, unavoidably, deadly enemies. With Canone Inverso, Paolo Maurensig can provide a robust metaphysical mystery, culminating in a devastating finale.

Example text

Per ultimo aveva trovato lavoro in uno scannatoio dove, assieme ad altre donne, macinava la carne e confezionava salsicce e sa- lami. Ma era ancora giovane e bella. E presto il padrone dell'a- zienda, un uomo massiccio e molto più anziano di lei, se ne in- namorò. La sollevò da quel lavoro ingrato e la promosse a eti- chettatrice e imballatrice, e quando lei cominciò a tenere anche i conti, a sbrigare la corrispondenza e a occuparsi dei clienti, divenne la sua fidata e insostituibile collaboratrice.

Sembrava essersi calmato, o meglio, rassegnato. A un certo punto si alzò, posò il bicchiere e, av- viandosi verso la porta, si scusava per l'inopportuna intrusione e per la richiesta impossibile. Si rendeva conto, mi disse, della propria ingenuità. L'offerta di ricomprarmi il violino a un prez- zo triplicato era oltre tutto fuori dalla realtà, non potendosi egli permettere di sborsare una somma simile. E comunque era certo che, anche se avesse potuto disporne, io non avrei mai ceduto alle sue richieste.

Era una buona occasione per un pellegrinaggio musicale attraverso le capitali europee. Una di queste tappe, dopo Lipsia e Monaco, fu naturalmente Vienna, dove, nella Brahmssaal, il Neue Wiener Barockensemble, diretto da Heinz Prammer, aveva in pro- gramma, oltre ai sei Concerti brandeburghesi, la Suite in si mi- nore e il Concerto per violino e orchestra in mi maggiore. Due serate frammezzate da una pausa di tre giorni, nei quali però non correvo il rischio di annoiarmi. Era la fine dell'estate, la città era ancora affollata e festosa, e il tempo, a parte qualche improvviso temporale, volgeva al bello.
