Event: Francesco Pacifico

Brickbat Books:
Francesco Pacifico

After chronicling the temptations and foibles of earnest young Catholics in "The Story of My Purity," Francesco Pacifico turns his attention to Italy's other major religion: "Cool." On the trail of Italian hipsters from Rome to Williamsburg, "Class" is both savage and tender, like Antonioni's camera following Monica Vitti on her adventures, or--as the author might prefer--a vintage MTV rockumentary. A novel about the costs of "Americanization," in all senses, from Italy's most Yankophilic and most intelligently Yankophobic novelist.
