Product Details


“Rich and engrossing. . . . [Morselli’s] tale of a man whose certainties are destroyed will resonate with readers of any political persuasion.” —Publishers Weekly

“Morselli was a man of wide culture and vast reading, a writer of inexhaustible intellectual curiosity, possessed  of a rare talent to evoke social or historical settings.” —Charles Fantazzi

“Morselli’s novels…are serious social studies…. The uncanny, matter-of-fact depictions…give an eerie feeling of something utterly impossible becoming all-too-plausible…. Why works of such calibre went unpublished remains a mystery…his works simply remain there to be appreciated.” —Nicola Rossi, complete review Quarterly

“[Morselli’s] best-laid schemes of mice and monarchs are presided over by a cool and witty intellect.” —Christopher Wordsworth, The Guardian

“Morselli possessed the pure visionary’s exactness and constructive ability; each time he chose a subject, he punctiliously documented himself thereabout…an isolated experimenter…. He could prophetically interpret history as in Il Comunista or reverse it, with a good deal of fantastic inventiveness.” —Alfredo Giuliani, Literary Review

“Morselli [was] a master of irony and a deft juggler of tenses.” —Annapaola Cancogni, The New York Times
