This daring work, set in Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, weaves together two very different scenarios. In one scenario, conveyed by text and telephone messages or emails, the enigmatic journalist, Em, unaccountably endures a humiliatingly exploitative sexual relationship with her younger male lover, Davide, a law student with political ambitions who is already engaged to another woman. In the other scenario, young Edmondo, called Mondino, a member of a working-class suburban drug-running gang, tries his hand at describing how he and his mates, led by the charismatic hero Simone and his equally glamorous girlfriend, Michela, called Mikita or Miki, with whom Mondino is hopelessly in love, want to save the world from wage-slavery. Startlingly written, this book presents a shocking new Sardinia, a long leap beyond the ongoing tradition of tales of brigandage and mayhem in the mountains, and into hypothetical presents and futures.
