Fathers of families annihilated by the logic of the fast-food culture, publishers of tabloid newspapers specialised in cynicism and the manipulation of incompetence, owners of oyster-shaped beds worth 5,000 euros, tv soubrettes with a milleniarianist belief, Nasdaq-addicted stock brokers suffering from heart conditions. This is the humanity which populates Whoever remembers Peter Szoke?, Aloia's debut collection, a host of characters taking their first steps in the territory of the 21st century, still desperately trying to salvage a scrap of sense from the madness and instability of the times. Aloia's tales are told in a rich, elegant language, which is both compelling and touching, and in a style that embraces tradition, as well as post-modernism.
