The Goodbye Kiss

The Goodbye Kiss - Massimo Carlotto, Lawrence Venuti One thing you can say about the books of Massimo Carlotto is that they will make you feel better about your life, because nothing that's ever happened to me holds a candle to an ordinary day in the life of Mr. Carlotto's protagonists. In this outing we meet gleeful psychopath Giorgio Pellegrini, who prances from one trainwreck to the next but always comes off without a scratch. The one-time revolutionary is back on the scene after a stint in prison and all he wants is respectability. But to get it, he's willing and able to indulge in all manner of bloody, violent, nasty shenanigans. Turn off your inner feminist and come along for the ride! See my full review:
