La qualità dell'aria - Storie di questo tempo
by various authors
Publisher: Minimum Fax
Ten years after the first release, the anthology that launched and confirmed some of the best Italian authors of the 2000s returns in pocket edition. Twenty writers facing Italy at the beginning of the millennium: which country did they have under their eyes? A telecracy or a country moving towards radical political reforms? The first real experiment of mediatic democracy or a caricature of a regime? One of the cradles of humanism or the incubator of many reactionary and xenophobic tensions? Writers who grew up in the era of video games and commercial television, putting aside any temptation of literature-entertainment, are committed to telling their time, mercilessly. After ten years, that attempt to find a sentimental key to narrate their own world and peers keeps its force and urgency intact.
