Oh well, so the U.S. is the
Giuseppe Genna is a 35 year old Italian writer and editor of a literary journal, who has also worked in Italian television. The story was interesting, but predicatable. The flashbacks (30 years) were,at first confusing, but necessary to development of the plot. That said, I found his libelous ravings against Kisinger, Kennedy, and most all things American made the book difficult to finish. How soon our allies forget.

Too many pages on Kissingers tongue.
I enjoyed the start of the book, but soon found myself lost in all the dense build up to the climax. However, the final straw for me was what seemed like a 4 page review of Henry Kissinger scrapping nasty stuff off his tongue. It was nasty and added nothing. This is followed by a seemingly endless discussion of an airplane bathroom and bowel movements.
To many random vignettes that added nothing.
