The beginning of evil

Written by

February 2000. A Woman arrives in a small town by the sea. As everybody in this novel, she has no name but just property or profession. She is waiting for someone who won’t come. She is a stranger and the inhabitants will react to her presence creating thrilling, sometimes ridiculous or even tragicomic situations.


While she is living among them, many blackouts happen, a curious buzz is constant and a Boy will be killed. Jealousy, fear and anger and an awry perception of ethic will install darkness and violence in the small town. 

An optimistic book describing a society that has to die.
