Description
The secular and the pious; the rich and the poor; those with a capacity for destiny and those who cannot afford it are all thrown together in this "short, haunting philosophical novel" (Shelf Awareness) from Italian writer, director, and performer Alessandro Baricco, winner of France's prestigious Prix Médicis Étranger and numerous major prizes in Italy. Emmaus is a world of stark contrasts, one in which four young men—all from proud, struggling families, and all lusting after a hyper-sexual woman named Andre—are goaded from adolescence to manhood in a torrent of exploits and crises, sexual awakenings and morbid depressions. New Yorker editor and PEN Renato Poggioli Translation Award winner Ann Goldstein provides the translation.
