Product Details


“…the narrative is often impassionedly lyrical, both literary and musical in quality, as it proceeds from the unbridled optimism of the late 1990s to the abject hopelessness that the authors blame on globalization in general…The analysis often soars as a work of sociocultural criticism…it shows how hopes so high could be brought so low.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Fueled by alternating narratives from the two writers, Everything Is Broken Up and Dances pulls no punches in dissecting the misery represented in the difference between what was promised and what actually transpired.” —World Literature Today

“That we exchanged one of the world’s crown jewels—the Italian textile industry—for cheap, unimaginative fast fashion is a crime and a tragedy. You’ll believe this more than ever after reading this agonizingly beautiful book on globalization.” —Elizabeth L. Cline, author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion

“If you only do one thing this year – read this book. It will make you laugh, cry and give you a pretty good perspective on what happened to all of us in the last fifty years. We should all have an Edoardo and Guido in our lives.” —Livia Firth, Founder and Creative Director of Eco Age Ltd. and Oxfam Global Ambassador
“I absolutely love this book. For anyone searching to better understand our world, this is a roadmap of how we got here and what it means for each and every one of us moving forward. Great wit and chilling insight—could not put it down.” —Andrew Morgan, director of The True Cost 

“It’s an aesthetic delight, couching scathing social and economic critique in a near-poetic outpouring of creative rage.” —Popmatters
