Italy.s leading daily newspaper called The Worst Intentions, .a dangerous novel.. Right from the title, wrote La Repubblica, this daring book .proclaims the furiously bellicose and iconoclastic spirit that drives it..
Daniel is the thirty-three-year-old heir to the dappled fortunes of the Sonninos, a wealthy Jewish-Italian family whose staggering rise and fall during the years spanning the end of WW2 and the beginning of the twenty-first century provides the richly colored backdrop to this remarkable tragi-comedy. Daniel has inherited his grandfather.s extravagant passions and his father.s servility, as well as the excesses of his social class. He is also victim of a crippling infatuation with Gaia, fountainhead of his erotic fantasies and fetishes. This novel will be justly compared to the works of Philip Roth and Saul Bellow. An audacious, sumptuous novel about ritual and liberty, love and war, sex and betrayal, set in the opulent neighborhoods of contemporary Rome.
.A resounding success! I.m telling everyone they must read it...Gad Lerner, Vanity Fair
