About the Author
GIACOMO PAPI is the author of Era una notte buia e tempestosa (It was a dark and stormy night), an anthology of the best opening lines in world literature, Papa, a best-selling humorous guide for expecting fathers, and several other books. Since 2000 he has worked as a journalist for Diario, an Italian weekly news magazine. Together with Massimo Coppola, he runs ISBN Edizioni, an imprint of the Italian book publisher Saggiatore.
"This mug-shot history captures the ugliness and the nobility of the past century in stark flashes of evil, strength, and human frailty. Frame by frame you will stare into the eyes of the unfortunate and the powerful. There's a dark and tragic beauty that grows as your eyes shift from one mug to the next. Pick this book up and don't look away." -Andrew Mattson, co-author of The Bobbed Haired Bandit
