"Come un respiro interrotto" is such a complex narration which makes it quite impossible to tell you thoroughly what it is about. It is a choral narration, with numerous voices and many points of view. It is the story a woman, Soledad, Sole, an extraordinary singer and a fascinating woman, told by so many different characters who knew/met her and who contribute details to her portrayal. "All those who heard her singing said they felt as if they had stepped into the void".
But it is also the story of Matteo, a musician, in love with Sole, and one of her best friends. Music, nostalgia, melancholy, Italy's recent history, the shattered dreams of my own generation are among the themes I mostly appreciated in this book, together with its layout, the complex net of threads which interwining form a captivating picture.
