Cesta třináctiletého Joela Knoxe za tatínkem, která se mění v cestu do hlubin jeho tápajícího srdce, je lyrickým příběhem o lidské osamělosti a hledání lásky. V pohádkově viděném světě amerického Jihu, zaplněném přízračnými vidinami a fantastickými sny, žijí osobité postavy, které mají jedno společné: potíže s nalezením životního přítele.

13-year-old Joel Knox leaves his aunt's house in New Orleans, where he has been comfortably cared for since his mother's death, ostensibly having been summoned by the father he has never met. His solo journey into the gothic environs of Southern decay leads him to an obscure backwater where he meets blighted characters haunted by the past, struggling with the present and dubious of the future. Joel has long been able to take himself to a "secret room" in his mind, and often has unbidden visions as well. He puts his observations of the new people in his life to good use, eventually realizing basic truths about himself and what matters to him. A brilliant short novel packed with elegant prose, atmosphere and humanity. If only Capote could have held on to the wise young man inside himself shown to us here.

"...only hypocrites would hold a man responsible for what he loves" ( )

Altre voci altre stanze potrebbe essere liquidato come l'ennesimo romanzo di formazione se non fosse così maledettamente ricco di significato.

Ciò che mi ha colpito di più è stato il disperato bisogno del protagonista tredicenne – Joel Knox – di essere amato, un grido muto, ma non meno potente, che si sente lungo tutto il romanzo. Un elemento dal sapore autobiografico, data la sfortunata infanzia di Capote, segnata da due genitori litigiosi e spesso assenti. In questo modo, l'autore deve aver imparato presto il gusto amaro della solitudine.

Così accade a Joel, che, tentato dalla prospettiva di trovare suo padre e, soprattutto, il suo affetto, si trasferisce a Noon City, nella casa paterna, Skully's Landing. Fin da subito il Landing appare un luogo lontano da ogni civiltà e consuetudine: lì il tempo sembra avere una propria scansione e i suoi abitanti sono altrettanto confusi tra realtà e sogno.

E in questo limbo Joel raggiunge la sua maturità: scopre che il padre delude ogni sua aspettativa, che la sua sessualità non segue una strada definita e che, per non perdersi, deve andare via da quel luogo di incubi e misteri. Come a dire che deve abbandonare la fanciullezza per una maturità consapevole. ( )

Truman Capote's debut novel is amazing. It's been described as hallucinogenic or "gothic on steroids". I would have to agree with both descriptions. I listened on audio, which was a full immersion experience.

The story is reportedly semi-autobiographical. It opens with Joel Knox, a young 12-year old boy traveling to meet his father for the first time in his life. Up till now he's lived in New Orleans, but his father lives at a place called Skully's Landing - very remote and difficult to reach place in the deep south.

At Skully's Landing Joel encounters a menagerie of characters and odd incidents. Some of the incidents seem to actually occur, where others are only in Joel's imagination.

Altogether a wonderful listen and a good distraction! ( )

Published when Truman Capote was only twenty-three years old, Other Voices, Other Rooms is a literary touchstone of the mid-twentieth century. In this semiautobiographical coming-of-age novel, thirteen-year-old Joel Knox, after losing his mother, is sent from New Orleans to live with the father who abandoned him at birth. But when Joel arrives at Skully’s Landing, the decaying mansion in rural Alabama, his father is nowhere to be found. Instead, Joel meets his morose stepmother, Amy, eccentric cousin Randolph, and a defiant little girl named Idabel, who soon offers Joel the love and approval he seeks.

Now a traveler must make his way to Noon City by the best means he can, for there are no buses or trains heading in that direction, though six days a week a truck from the Chuberry Turpentine Company collects mail and supplies in the next-door town of Paradise Chapel: occasionally a person bound for Noon City can catch a ride with the driver of the truck, Same Radclif.
