Reviews

"A young Italian man is involuntarily committed to a psychiatric ward in Mencarelli's evocative work of autofiction, his English-language debut... Mencarelli captures Daniele's muddled emotional state--a blend of shame, confusion, and chafing at restrictions--in powerful, compact scenes. With its bracing view of the hero's interior world, this meditative novel viscerally excoriates the failings of his treatment."--Publishers Weekly


"Moving and engaging. This novel will stay with you."--Goffredo Fofi, Internazionale


"Mencarelli writes with the grace and power of a poet. His words illuminate truth like a flash of lightning."--Il Sole 24 Ore


"Mencarelli's writing is extraordinary for its intensity and empathy... His prose has the emotional force of poetry."--Radio Tre
