I'm starting from four

Author: Mario Di Adamo

About the book

In his second work, consisting of four short stories with four different protagonists, the author continues to describe a lifestyle that no longer exists. A society whose fundamental principles were loyal and supportive friendship, personal and collective sacrifice, constant commitment, and an almost stubborn perseverance in the pursuit of one’s own expectations and goals. The writing style is characterised by a stark and plain realism, which provides the reader with the absolute immediacy of the various events and thus an unchanged emotional involvement, both in a positive and sometimes in a negative sense. The readers, especially the young ones, will certainly be able to grasp, beyond their own more or less fulfilled aspirations, the propulsive force that pushes the protagonists to never give up and to go on, whatever the difficulties and impediments they face. Perhaps this is exactly the underlying message for the new generations. Life must be lived with courage and determination, because it is always and in any case a gift.
