I picked this book up at the library in about 2003-2004 when I was unemployed and looking for something to read to pass the time. As a big fan of subculture fiction and shoddy underground crime stories, this book really appealed to me. You can tell it wasn't written by a guy from Canada or the United States just in the sheer style of writing - it's uplifting, poetic and quite funny to read. The energy and attitudes of the lowlife characters in the book are infectious.

I even emailed Remmert hims
I tried reading it but couldn't get into it. Id imagine in it's original italian it was very good but to me it didn't translate over well
