A Violent Life: A Novel
"The most remarkable figure to have emerged in Italian arts and letters since the second World War" (Susan Sontag) writes the story of an amoral street hood who emerges as a figure of unexpected nobility after a stint in prison. Ironically, 16 years after the publication of this novel, the author was murdered by a young man whose life bore a startling and haunting resemblance to Pasolini's character.
