Democracy

Joan Didion

Inez Victor è una donna bella e affascinante, rilascia interviste, organizza cocktail party e raccoglie fondi. Suo marito, Harry Victor, è un senatore degli Stati Uniti dAmerica, impegnato in una perenne campagna elettorale. Cosa faccia Jack Lovett, invece, nessuno lo sa con precisione. Forse il consulente per il governo, forse lagente segreto, forse il trafficante darmi. Jack è luomo giusto sempre nel posto giusto. E così che ha conosciuto Inez, sposata con Harry Victor, la donna giusta al momento sbagliato. Fra Honolulu e il Sudest asiatico, tra Washington e New York, gli sguardi e i gesti fra i tre si intrecciano sempre di più stringendoli nella morsa di quegli anni 70 che hanno visto la politica americana rendersi inseparabile dalle vite private dei suoi protagonisti. Fotografata, ripresa, inseguita, Inez osserva la sua vita cadere a pezzi come se non la riguardasse. Solo un danno collaterale, lennesimo di unesistenza vissuta fra compromessi e manipolazioni, dietro le quinte di un potere sempre più inafferrabile.
