Title: There is an Island: Our Time and Our Children
Author: Susanna Tamaro
Data: 2013, 162 p., paperback
In an imaginary dialogue with her readers, Susanna Tamaro reflects on Italy’s history, its complex and confusing present, and its uncertain future. She takes a stand on some of the hottest and most debated current, cultural issues: the Catholic Church, the concept of life and motherhood, today’s youth, nature, environmental negligence, the mistreatment of animals, politicians’ moral decay, and women’s role in the family and society. A clear and disenchanted testimony of civic passion intertwined with an intimate and personal story.
