In this intelligent and irresistible blend of social satire and noir, the Algerian author Amara Lakhous (now resident in his adopted city, Rome) recounts the affairs of a multicultural crowd living in and enlivening a building in Rome’s Piazza Vittorio. He does so through alternating precise analysis of a socio-anthropological nature with buoyant storytelling.
