A note from the translator: Marco Genovesi, like many young writers in Italy, has sought inspiration in outside sources. While he draws on a wide variety of English-language authors, from Bukowski to Woolf, he has also turned to Japanese literature, especially the haiku poets and the novelists Kawabata and Murakami. In Genovesis poems and stories, their focused imagery and clipped phraseology run counter to the exuberant Anglo-American strain. By adroitly combining these disparate elements, he achieves a wholly original voice. - Hoyt RogersGenovesi makes use of diverse perspectives: spaces that are wide-open or infinitely small, present or post-apocalyptic, distorted by alcohol or clear as day. His harmonization of narrative rhythm with an acute sense of place quickly wins the readers empathy. -Michele CasagrandeWe of the younger generation are entirely products of the mass culture in a way that previous generations have not been. And thats a good thing, I think. The problem is that the elite culture has become more and more restricted and isolated, and so it has lost its desire to innovate. - Marco GenovesiThis is a bilingual (Italian and English) edition from Odd Volumes.
