The Barbarians - Alessandro Baricco, 2006
Do you feel sorry that wine is no longer an almost holy spirit? Grieve over the fall of the specialized football player at the feet of the all-round-field-runner? Feel regret in bookstores that besides high literature also serve masses of blah and coffee? Then perhaps you, unlike me, are not a barbarian - but you can become one after reading Baricco’s book.
