About this item
A fun and farcical novel, this new "whodunit" about life in multicultural Italy by Amara Lakhous wil delight fans of Lakhous' earlier bestseller,Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio, and readers of novels such asThe Yacoubian Building by Alaa Al Aswany. Bittersweet, like any self-respecting Italian comedy, The Hoax is a Pirandellian exploration of identity in today's multicultural, polyglot societies. Lakhous draws inspiration from everyday reality, describing his approach to writing as 'total literature," a term he has adapted from soccer's "total football." He plays in attack, describing in this work the realities of an Italy of the future with colorful characters portrayed in limpid but lively prose.
