Querelle’s cover

"A long story with an autobiographical nature, a memorial to stop the desire to escape: the story of Piero and friends, restless young people debated between existence and emptiness, between desire and disaffection, memories that unfold with a ferocious disenchantment, by slippage and temporal overlap. The sliding places of the crossing (from the United Kingdom to Rome, from Messina to the Ionian coast) offer clues to this intolerance, but it is the writing (nervous, jerky, like a photographic flash) code and fresco of disorientation: in a sort of " probation "vague thinking, a measure of Kerouachian wandering that sometimes deludes itself into rediscovering existence" (Maria Gabriella Canfarelli)
