Margherita Dolce Vita

A novel by


"A master of political satire infused with a dose of the fantastical."-World Literature Today

Stefano Benni's enormously popular and distinctive mix of the absurd and the satiri-cal has made him one of Italy's most important and best-loved novelists. This is his twelfth best-selling book of fiction.

Fifteen-year-old Margherita lives with her eccentric family on the outskirts of town, a semi-urban wilderness peopled by gypsies, illegal immigrants, and no end of bizarre characters: a reassuring and fertile playground for an imaginative little girl like Margherita. But one day, a gigantic, black cube shows up next door. Her new neighbors have arrived, and they're destined to ruin everything.


Praise for this book

"Read this book, bring it to life in the theater of your own imagination. You'll hold your breath as you read it, that is when you're not laughing out loud." - Dario Fo
