638 pp. Used but still handsome. 'Had it not been for the absurdity of life and its unhappiness, this book would never have been written. . . . We don't shed books the way we shed hair or skin or strange ideas. . . . I must mention . . . first and foremost Gaetano Salvemini, one of the greatest men my country gave the world in the last century, a man hated by everyone who had something to hide, and then loved by these same people the moment they learned from him that lies are limited and the truth endless.' Tucci's first book in English.
