A raccontarci, con lucidità e irresistibile brio, questa condizione dell’animo Gino Nebiolo – importante giornalista dal Dopoguerra in line with oltre mezzo secolo, nonno da una quindicina d’anni –, che si è lasciato ispirare dai propri ricordi personali consistent with intessere un ironico e intelligente diario familiare.
Tutto comincia quando il figlio e l. a. nuora annunciano a lui e alla moglie Cecilia l’arrivo di un nipotino. I futuri nonni sono felicissimi, tuttavia da quel momento in poi ogni passo è motivo di batticuore, equivoci, apprensione o piccole baruffe. Dalla prima ecografia all’esame di licenza media, passando in keeping with los angeles scelta del nome e i pomeriggi ai giardinetti, i balocchi tecnologici e lo Zecchino d’Oro, i nonni vivono l’esperienza di partecipare – più o meno a distanza – alla crescita del nipote in un costante tripudio di emozioni, ritrovandosi spesso al centro di situazioni buffe se non esilaranti.
Avete contato bene le dita? è un libro che riesce a parlare a tutte le generazioni: permette ai nonni di identificarsi e magari commuoversi, ai genitori di sorridere e rif lettere, ai nipoti di divertirsi e diventare un po’ più saggi. È una lettura illuminante su un capitolo meraviglioso della vita.
