Antonio Moresco born 30 October in Mantua is an Italian writer. Defined as one of the founding fathers of a new line of Italian literature that moves beyond post-modernity, and likened to Don DeLillo and Thomas Pynchon ,  he has been described by Roberto Saviano as "a literary heritage". His first publications appeared late in his life, after he had been turned down by several publishers. He has published many other works, such as short stories, children stories, and he has organized several collective marches throughout Italy and Europe, which have become the topics for some of his works.

It resolves a myriad of aesthetical problems being neither mimetic nor fantastic; it gives a definitive word on the destiny of the individual in our time, on his prospects of finding an existential posture, a mark of his calling, a space of political expression, a connection between I am and I do. It is a book that will remain a literary event, the work of a lifetime.
He's probably a Status Writer. Alexander Pushkin, Emily Dickinson, Giacomo Leopardi, Bartleby, Smerdyakov , and where he is briefly reunited with the Peach, the narrator goes for a walk with the Cat for the last time. Always be thinking of Molly. Based on a handful of the reviews in the Italian media, I had naively believed that I was ready for it. A humbling List for certain. I thought nothing could surprise me anymore, there was no weirdness left that would be too weird for me, no imagery so violent and outlandish it would be scorched into my brain to haunt me for weeks, no narrative and language idiosyncrasies that would leave me infuriated, appalled, dismayed and, at the same time, intoxicated with the unexpected exhilaration of being in the presence of something significant, albeit extremely disturbing, being synthesised right in front of my eyes.
Man, was I wrong! The competition for the right to be the main narrator runs through the whole novel. Sperm, blood, shit, and other bodily substances gush on the pages without restraint. It is God, of course, who has grown tired of his creation and wants to fob it off to somebody else. If only fifty pages out of the whole novel could be translated into English, it must be those containing this story, which showcases in a condensed way, as if reflecting its subject matter, all the abilities of Moresco the stylist, the story-teller, the satirist, and the innovator.
