Mildred Pierce L inferno, in fondo, un posto dove si lotta per emergere E per emergere Mildred Pierce usa le cose che ha delle splendide gambe, e l arte di cucinare benissimo, da buona donna di casa americana Ora, divorziata da un marito ex benestante, e con due figlie, solo una donna bianca tra le tante, negli Stati Uniti del 1931 Ma Mildred vuole farcela, e non guarda in faccia nessuno Ferocemente attiva, da cameriera riesce ad aprire un ristorante, poi a costruire un piccolo impero Purtroppo Mildred ha due difetti una passione per gli uomini inconcludenti e spendaccioni, e una devozione irragionevole, un attaccamento morboso per la figlia pi bella, un piccolo demone opportunista su cui Mildred proietta le sue fantasie di riscatto.Mildred Pierce, pubblicato nel 1941, uno dei gioielli della narrativa di James M Cain Qui l autore di celebri noir come Il postino suona sempre due volte si trattiene dal mettere in scena in modo diretto delitto e violenza, che per risultano tanto pi interni e necessari, quasi una condizione permanente di possibilit in un meccanismo sociale cos spietatamente descritto e infatti, la celebre versione cinematografica del romanzo ha un finale diverso dal libro, pi esplicito E modernissima diventa la sua paradossale critica del lavoro come radice illusoria del sogno di ricchezza individuale, da raggiungere combattendo contro gli altri, ma soprattutto, alla fine, contro se stessi.
