"Silenziosi sui loro piedi nudi gli schiavi attraversano duecento anni di storia danese senza lasciare altra traccia che due righe nei libri di scuola: la Danimarca fu il primo paese ad abolire il traffico degli schiavi. Migliaia di uomini, donne e bambini. E di loro non resta che una frase.
Per di più falsa." Quel traffico continuerà per decenni dopo l’abolizione ufficiale, ma nessuno schiavo ha mai raccontato la sua storia: per dar voce a quelle migliaia di esseri umani privati della libertà, incatenati, venduti e trascinati dall'altra parte dell'oceano, Thorkild Hansen va a cercare le tracce dei loro passi nella Guinea danese, l'attuale Ghana, lungo le rive del Volta, tra le rovine dei forti che dominavano con le loro mura bianche quella costa bordata di palme e battuta dalla risacca. E come guida si serve di diari, lettere, documenti lasciati da sette "testimoni oculari" che si sono succeduti nel corso di due secoli tra quelle mura: un tenente, due sacerdoti, un mercante, un medico, un contabile e un governatore. Spinti dall'ambizione, dall'avventura o da ideali, chi approfittando di quel commercio e chi combattendolo: "gente comune, buona e cattiva, ma per lo più buona, forte e debole, ma per lo più debole", che, con le proprie vicende, è parte della storia, tra i vincitori o tra i perdenti, ma più probabilmente solo impotente davanti a un meccanismo ben più vasto che chiama in causa re, ricchi e filosofi, che siano Hobbes, Kierkegaard o Rousseau. Non sarà forse quando non è più redditizio che si ferma quel traffico diventato illegale? Il bisogno di rendere una tardiva giustizia a quei dannati che, come nell'Inferno di Dante, non proiettano ombra nella storia, porta Hansen a raccontare i destini di singoli che non fanno che porre "le solite vecchie domande": l'uomo è cattivo? è buono? o è solo debole?
The Drum Tower is Farnoosh Moshiri's fourth work of fiction concerned with the deleterious effects of the Iranian Revolution of 1979. This novel, told by a mentally ill, 16-year-old girl, depicts the fall of Drum Tower, the house of a family descended from generations of War Ministers. Rich in characters-Talkhoon, who struggles to control the winds she hears inside her head and who tells the story; Assad, a man made evil by his love for her; Anvar Angha, Talkhoon's grandfather who has devoted his life to writing a book about the Simorgh (the mythical bird of knowledge; the Persian Phoenix) but never completes it; Soraya, Talkhoon's mother, whom we never meet but about whom myriad and contradictory stories abound-and rich in family secrets, this novel chronicles the early days of the revolution, the ruthness and opportunism of the competing factions, the rise of the Revolutionary Guard, the chaos and murder in the streets of Tehran, the arrests and executions, as experienced by the members of this family. The Drum Tower may be compared, favorably, to Gone with the Wind. It has already won two Barbara Deming Memorial Fund Fiction Awards and a Black Heron Press Award for Social Fiction. It has been licensed to the United Kingdom's Sandstone Press which will publish the British Commonwealth edition simultaneous with the Black Heron Press edition.
