Looking at this author, you’d think that his book would be a crime thriller, or at the very least, a deeply disturbing and personal story from the holocaust. Not so. He is however the author of a book about the history of Trieste, a prosperous seaport city in one of the wealthiest areas of Italy. Also, he is a riot at dinner parties.
Claudio Magris, author of ‘Microcosms’, published 1999.
