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.

Good story line. Initially though it was slow going but then realized it was the author's intention. Thought provoking

stay with this oh-so passive protagonist; you will be rewarded... NOT for the faint-hearted (nor would any apocalyptic story be) I found myself reassessing my own ideas about being 'civilized' -about what is required to maintain or create a 'civilization'
