This collection of short stories won the Elsa Morante prize in 2005. In 2007 it was published again with two reprints. In 2009 the contract with the publishing house expired, so I decided to publish it again for personal reasons; it was my first publication and I wanted to offer it again for those who did not have the opportunity to read it previously.
The use of the first person singular unites these ten stories, which are all very human stories that will make you cry, laugh, or simply reflect on life. The first person is used in the broadest sense of the word to emphasize that every person is unique and incredible.
“Pivari’s stories are well written and easy to read. The author knows how to get into someone else’s shoes, both as a male and a female, sharing believable stories which have a universal moral. Each story easily involves you, and can be understood by everyone” (Franco Vivona, reason for prize).
I wanted to re-publish this book with a slightly different style, and the only change I made was in the title of the song from the radio, in the first story. Please don’t ask me why I did this!
