We situeren ons in een typisch Italiaans stadje, Ferrara, in een klas omstreeks medio jaren ‘ The series also includes: It has a kind of Proustian style, and a delicacy of perception that readers of Bassani know and love, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The characters in this book are truly unforgettable. Acquiring self-knowledge is a painful process.
