Clara Arosio – Perspectives and characters in Fruttero’s and Lucentini’s crime novels

 

Parallel investigation

In this essay, Clara Arosio studies two books – The Sunday Woman (Harcourt Brace, 1973) and A che punto è la notte –  analyzing both their semiotics and narrative. We so have a detailed study, also suitable for the non-specialized reader, and presented in a clear and passionate way: a true investigation, parallel to the criminal ones carried by the novels’ Inspector, Santamaria.
The analytical method used by the author makes this book a very useful tool, even for people approaching fiction writing, offering many ideas and enlightening about the numerous possibilities available.
