Microcosms, Paperback / softback Book

Description

In the tiny borderlands of Istria and Italy, from the forests of Monte Nevoso, to the hidden valleys of the Tyrol, to a Trieste cafe, Microcosms pieces together a mosaic of stories - comic, tragic, picaresque, nostalgic - from life's minor characters.

Their worlds might be small, but they are far from minimalist: in them flashes the great, the meaningful, the unrepeatable significance of every existence.
