The result of a long friendship, this book collects an extensive conversation between Dacia Maraini and Gioconda Marinelli on various topics, from daily ones to burning issues as pollution and pandemics, through the passions and battles of a lifetime.
Maraini tells herself without hesitation and talks about feelings, values, emotions, weaknesses, certainties, habits and experiences. From the conversation questions emerge that belong to everyone's life, about love, suffering, violence, death.
Marinelli's questions are pressing and Maraini's answers and considerations are sure, quick, sincere, never elusive.
While sharing Maraini's innermost thoughts and soul motions, this book is food for thought.
