About the Book

WORLD LITERATURE TODAY: “Albert Russo’s collected stories included in this hefty volume constitute an excellent testimony on the writer´s ability to create fiction which is both entertaining and thought-provoking in a surprising variety of contexts. All of Mr Russo´s readers know that he can write as easily about his native Africa as about present-day New York or Italy; and the collection, with stories set in different places and milieus, highlights his special talent at transporting his readers from one scene to another, in a kind of “sentimental journey” through human experience. Science fiction and fantasy are other paths trodden by Albert Russo in his quest for a pre-Babel reconciliation of man with himself in all his constitutive dimensions, linguistic and social, but also generic and transcendental.”
