Short and very short tales. Waiters, bar tenders, bitches, transsexuals, prostitution: a clear-cut depiction of lonelyness and human contrasts told with the will of understanding the shapes and shades of relationships. Actual aliens and alienation into a ruthless analysis of the contemporary. Based on this book, the movie L’ultimo terrestre from Gipi.
"Giacomo Monti is a brilliant author, he took a step further than I did. He had insights about
contemporary Italy which are perfect for a story"
