Opinion

From Library Staff

I just finished this book yesterday and had to include it as it is not your typical modern Italian fiction novel: a post-apocalyptic dystopian story. The vineyards and industry of North Italy give way to gangs, violence, and a father struggling to keep himself and his children alive.
