With impacts as various as Darwin, Freud and the Marx Brothers, his writing monitors a mix of pathos, slapstick and mental perception, shot via with bolts of Kafkaesque inventiveness.

Combattono una battaglia antica e attuale contro gli uomini amati che troppo spesso si rivelano incapaci di crescere, confondono los angeles passione con il possesso e, consistent with questo, l’amore lo rubano. Sono donne come Marina, che si ostina a cadere dalle scale; Ale, che sceglie di non some distance nascere il frutto di una violenza; o Angela, che sopporta una gelosia mostruosa in silenzio. Otto storie affilate e perfette, capaci di emozionare e indignare, che raccontano il nostro mondo, diviso fra chi conosce il rispetto e chi, con antica arroganza, considera l’altro un oggetto. Un libro specialty e importante, che alza un velo su ciò che troppo spesso finisce nell’oblio.
