Book of the Week Book of the Week: A Pick by Ricardo Cases Photographer Ricardo Cases selects Italia o Italia by Frederico Clavarino as photo-eye Book of the Week.
This week's Book of the Week pick comes from photographer Ricardo Cases who has selected Italia o Italia by Frederico Clavarino published by Akina.
"A fascinating fictional account based on actual events, whose main characters are a gate and a man looking up, the picture of a shadow, an unnailed wooden board, a closed parasol, the silhouette of a muscleman, the absence of an ad, a man walking alone with his thoughts, two twin walls, a balustrade and the drawing of it, a rabid stone dog, and nuns, lots of nuns. A question and a labyrinth. A journey and a mirror."—Ricardo Cases
