p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Depois do sucesso de Garota exemplar, primeiro best-seller de Gillian Flynn adaptado para o cinema, chega a vez de Sharp Objects: Objetos cortantes — livro de estreia da autora —, inspirar a nova série da HBO. Protagonizada por Amy Adams, Sharp Objects terá oito episódios e direção de Jean-Marc Vallée, que também dirigiu a premiada série da HBO Big Little Lies, com Nicole Kidman e Reese Witherspoon. Com reviravoltas surpreendentes, Sharp Objects: Objetos cortantes narra o retorno da repórter Camille Preaker, recém-saída de um hospital psiquiátrico, à sua cidade natal para investigar o brutal assassinato de uma menina e o desaparecimento de outra. Desde que deixou a pequena Wind Gap, no Missouri, oito anos antes, Camille quase não falou com a mãe neurótica, o padrasto e a meia-irmã que praticamente não conhece. Hospedada na casa da família, a jornalista precisa lidar com as memórias difíceis de sua infância e adolescência. E à medida que as investigações para elaborar sua matéria avançam, Camille passa a desvendar segredos perturbadores, tão macabros quanto os problemas que ela própria enfrenta.

Otto anni dopo essere andata via da Wind Gap, la cittadina soffocante in cui è nata e cresciuta, Camille Preaker lascia Chicago per tornare in quel minuscolo avamposto cattolico del Missouri battista, luogo sperso nel nulla, dove la gente si illude di sapere come stare al mondo. È il giornale per cui lavora a spedirla laggiù, in seguito alla scomparsa della piccola Natalie Keene. Caso che somiglia a quello di un'altra bambina svanita nel nulla poco tempo prima, ricomparsa il giorno dopo nel letto di un torrente, strangolata. Aveva solo nove anni. Anche il cadavere di Natalie viene rinvenuto ben presto e la comunità di Wind Gap deve arrendersi all'evidenza: la mano che si è abbattuta con brutale meticolosità sulle due bambine è la stessa. A rivelarlo è un unico, macabro dettaglio. Con caparbietà, Camille porta avanti la propria indagine sfidando le rigide norme sociali di una cittadina bigotta e pettegola, ma soprattutto è costretta ad affrontare la madre, una donna fredda e manipolatrice, ammirata dai vicini e temuta dentro casa, da cui era fuggita ancora ragazza. L'inchiesta si gonfia come un fiume in piena e Camille non è più in grado di tenere a freno i ricordi e il male che contengono. Sofisticato thriller psicologico dal ritmo pulsante, il romanzo di Gillian Flynn indaga i risvolti oscuri delle relazioni tra sorelle, madri e figlie e mette in scena una figura femminile che attraversa l'inferno con occhi nuovi, sorprendente protagonista - così il Guardian - di "un viaggio indimenticabile, gelido e illuminante".
