Italian text

The life of Dr. Manetti, psychologist, seems perfect: a successful career, a beautiful wife who loves him, and the son that any father would desire. All this, however, is bound to collapse.
His wife, tired of their relationship which she sees as too “normal”, drags the main character in a group of swingers, and soon leaves behind her former faithfulness. The son turns out to be homosexual, thus shaking the conservative ideas of many relatives. Manetti himself starts a love affair with a young patient, breaking all the rules of professional conduct and ethics. But after harsh times, even the darkest clouds can thin...
A sharp and brilliant novel, dealing with burning issues like the lack of communication within the family and the selfishness which threatens true human relations.
