Tom Wolfe - Radical chic. Il fascino irresistibile dei rivoluzionari da salotto
Italian | Castelvecchi | 2014 | ASIN: B00PH983R6 | 135 pages | EPUB | 1 MB

Radical chic è lo spassoso e tagliente articolo in cui Tom Wolfe descrive il curioso fenomeno sociale, sorto alla fine degli anni Sessanta negli Stati Uniti, del corteggiamento da parte dell’élite newyorkese di ogni possibile rivoluzionario radicale, dagli antimilitaristi agli hippy psichedelici. L’occasione che ispirò a Wolfe la celebre definizione «radical chic» fu il ricevimento organizzato a Manhattan il 14 gennaio 1970 da Felicia Bernstein, moglie del compositore e direttore d’orchestra Leonard, per sostenere la causa del gruppo rivoluzionario marxista-leninista delle Pantere Nere. La serata si svolse nell’attico di tredici stanze che i Bernstein possedevano a Park Avenue, e Wolfe ne scrisse un ampio e caustico resoconto intitolato These Radical Chic Evenings, pubblicato nel mese di giugno sul «New York Magazine».

Negli anni Sessanta e Settanta diventò estremamente di moda, per gli intellettuali newyorchesi ricchi e affermati, ospitare nei propri salotti ogni possibile rivoluzionario radicale, dalle Pantere Nere agli antimilitaristi agli hippy psichedelici. In questo libro Tom Wolfe mette in ridicolo quegli ambienti (di cui esiste anche una versione italiana), descrivendo una serie di serate mondane all'insegna di "Invita-una-Pantera-Nera-al-Cocktail". Quando il libro apparve per la prima volta nel giugno del 1970 sul "New York Magazine", lo scandalo fu grande: fu una dura e sana presa in giro della Buona Coscienza Progressista, tuttora attuale.
