"Clash..." Gets an Early Mention in the New York Times

Amara Lakhous's Clash of Civlizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio (forthcoming from Europa Editions, fall 2008) received a mention in the Letters to the Editor section of last Sunday's New York Times Book Review.

Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio, translated from the Italian by New Yorker editor Ann Goldstein, is a bittersweet comedy told with affection and sensitivity at the heart of which is a social reality that we tend to gloss over. As a review of the Italian edition says: “The real protagonist here is the piazza itself, its life made up of many lives intertwined, its chaotic vitality. Read this book, it’s well worth the effort. It represents a new look at a new city.” (La Repubblica)
