Title: A Childhood
Author: Susanna Tamaro, Adriano Evangelisti
Data: 2013, ebook
Adapted for the theater by Adriano Evangelisti.
A psychological thriller that opens the inner world of a disturbed young man who constantly balances charming sweetness, discomfort, and a chilling loss of control. He gives his confession while fluctuating between a sense of detachment and a desire to taunt the listener, revealing a sick heart and mind that are unperturbed by his own violence. He tells the story of his youth as an unwanted child desperate for the attention of his egocentric and cynical mother as if he were speaking to an imaginary friend.
