In 1938 there are 32 countries to face the issue of Jews on the run from Germany and Austria. Many beautiful words but in practice nobody wants them. A surprising analogy with the refugee drama in our days.
In the same year 1938 the infamous racial laws are promulgated in Italy. How and with what inner thrusts the single man reacts to the nefarious strokes of history? Will there be someone willing to rebel in front of the many ruthless barriers? In this new exciting novel Lia Levi returns to tackle the still burning themes of our tragic past with particular tension.
Genoa. A Jewish family over the years of racial laws. A missed genius son, a disappointed and grudged mother, a wise father but not quite determined, a bizarre grandfather, unconscious uncles, cousins that disappear and reappear. How much can personal implications be affected when it is the story to submit its inexorable dilemmas? Is it possible to want to stay in the earth where there are your roots or is it urgent to escape? If so, where? Will a country really available at reception?
The tragedy that moves from above the threads of the different destinies are to intertwrite the doubts, passions, weaknesses, the undersigned and the betrayal of the unfolding of the human comedy.
A story of despair and courage really happened, but completely reinvented, which through the filter of the mysterious folds of the soul brings us back to a recent tragic past.
