Italian Pulp Fiction: the Giovani
Since 1996, a group of young, innovative writers dubbed the Giovani Cannibali has generated popular and critical attention in Italy. This book introduces the works of the Cannibali writers Aldo Nove, Isabella Santacroce, and Niccolo Ammaniti -- among others -- to Anglophone readers. It also initiates an in-depth discussion of the dynamics that allowed for this particular group of the mid-1990s to stimulate a profound evolution in the form and very ethics of modern Italian literature.
