There is an Island
Our Time and Our Children
In an imaginary dialogue with her readers, Susanna Tamaro reflects on Italy’s history, its complex and confusing present, and its uncertain future. She takes a stand on some of the hottest and most debated current cultural issues: the Catholic Church, the concept of life and motherhood, today’s youth, nature, environmental negligence, the mistreatment of animals, politicians’ moral decay, and women’s role in the family and society. A clear and disenchanted testimony of civic passion intertwined with an intimate and personal story.
