Winner of the 2013 Strega Award with Resistere non serve a niente (Rizzoli), Walter Siti – one of the greatest living writers, as described by critics from all the countries in which his works have been translated – returns to Gender Bender to present his latest work Exit strategy, a novel which dissects almost in diary form the day-to-day events of the economic crisis, from political and institutional paralysis, the vocation of superfluous consumption and easy pleasure, which after characterizing the Berlusconi period now risks leaving the population lost and depressed. Siti faces the question beginning from a personal experience: he tells of how he escaped from an erotic obsession which seemed eternal, and his conversion to something which seemed to represent his opposite, from the drugged skies of artificial bodies to the land of a too-human love. As a counterpoint there are the chapters dedicated to the Berlusconi era: from having the sun in ones pocket to a sad sunset, from the fluttering of butterfly wings to Dudù the dog.
