GIN TONIC A OCCHI CHIUSI
A powerful debut novel about the rise and fall of a Roman upper class family named Misiano. It moves between finance, politics and seduction. It’s ironic, sharp, irreverent and a page-turner. A wonderful, big social comedy in modern Italy.
What happens in this novel? Nothing. And everything. And then some more: sex scandals, political intrigue, matrimonial treason, fraud. Rome is bellissima, but also decomposing. Void of meaning, and yet dramatically fascinating.
Marco Ferrante is living in Rome. He has written several books about the Agnelli family and a biography of Sergio Marchionne (CEO of FIAT). Gin Tonic ad occhi chiusi is his first novel.
