From the beginning the story was one of the favorite forms of Niccolò Ammaniti. This book collects sixteen, a small summa introduced by the author himself. Stories that are born "from a simple (and often unlikely) hypothesis", from questions that overlook the absurd. And they take us to territories where there are no boundaries between normality and madness, between daily and fantastic. Where to drag the reader is an irregular and perfect rhythm. Why enter the world of Ammaniti is like taking a ride on the roller coaster: we move for unexpected waste, unexpected slowdowns and precipitous falls.
