Essays by Roberto Saviano. Translated by Oonagh Stransky.
Italian journalist Saviano pays tribute to the great jazz pianist Michel Petrucciani, in a triumphant tale of the man's music and his indomitable spirit, despite being crippled by brittle bone disease.
This series of essays are by the celebrated author of Gomorrah - a sensational book exposing the inner workings of the Italian Mafia. Journalist Roberto Saviano explores a range of his passions, both light and dark, sharing common themes of David vs Goliath and the power of art and talent to overcome difficulties, while offering a compelling insight into his life in hiding and under permanent police protection since Gomorrah's publication in 2006.
