Alessandro Piperno’s books have been described as post-Primo Levi literature. His novel,The Worst Intentions, is an irreverent description of 3 generations of a rich Jewish family from Turin.

With his Don Juan de la Mancha -a vivid portrait of the post-’68 generation -Robert Menasse, one of the leading voices in Austrian literature, is more entertaining and facetious than ever.

Both share the same ironic outlook on life, sex and families.
