A precious literary document as well as a heartfelt homage to Paris's twenty-five-year-long friendship with Moravia, one of the undisputed masters of Italian literature: in this book, novelist and journalist Renzo Paris has collected their interviews, intimate conversations, jokes, fights, phone calls, emotional outbursts during seaside daytrips or pizzeria dinners. These pages trace the boundary between the best-selling author and the insecure lover, between the affectionate friend and the surly intellectual. A brand-new point of view for critics and common readers alike.
