fear ends where truth begins

Einaudi 2023

Maria Cristina Palma has a seemingly perfect life, she is beautiful, rich, famous, the world revolves around her.
Then, one day, she receives a video on her cellphone that changes everything. There is a secret in her past that she has not come to terms with. 
Like a modern alienist Niccolò Ammaniti dissects a woman's mind, explores her fears, obsessions, unmentionable desires in a novel that combines reckless fantasy, psychological realism, a sense of the tragic and the enchantment of paradox.

Niccolò Ammaniti is back: naughtier, funnier and more romantic than ever.
