Live BaitBook - 2014
Nothing grows in this Tuscan backwater except the wild imagination of Fiorenzo, a 19-year-old metal head. He lives for his garage band, horror movies and fishing in the murky irrigation ditches outside of town. But when his path crosses with Mirko, the teenage cycling phenomenon, and Tiziana, the smart but frustrated head of the local youth centre turned refuge for the town's hard-drinking seniors; his world will never be the same. Told with the tenderness of a Fellini film, this contemporary novel continues the great tradition of Italian literature and cinema.
