By Álvaro Enrigue,Irina Bajini

ISBN-10: 8807031566

ISBN-13: 9788807031564

“Non è un libro su Caravaggio o Quevedo, ma è un libro con Caravaggio e Quevedo. Loro due, ma anche Cortés e Cuauhtémoc, Galileo e Pio iv. Straordinarie personalità che si affrontano. Tutti intenti a fare sesso, ubriacarsi, scommettere sul nulla. I romanzi distruggono monumenti perché tutti, persino i più casti, sono un po’ pornografici. Non è nemmeno un libro sulla nascita del tennis come recreation popolare, consistent with quanto si basi su un’indagine approfondita che ho svolto sull’argomento grazie a una borsa di studio della Public Library di ny, dopo aver pensato e ripensato al ritrovamento di un’informazione affascinante: il primo pittore autenticamente moderno della storia fu anche un abile tennista e un assassino. Nostro fratello.”
Álvaro Enrigue

Un’ingegnosa e divertente incursione nella Roma del Seicento barocco, in bilico fra narrativa e saggistica. Con il tennis come fil rouge.
