Full Description

In a warm, perceptive essay that touches on economics, fashion, literature, and politics, the Strega Prize-winning author of Story of My People reflects on the seismic shifts of 2020 and the diverse ways we're adapting. Attempting to make sense of the incredible upheaval of 2020--from the devastating impact of COVID-19 to the sudden loss of his father--Edoardo Nesi considers the changing global economy and its effect on our lives. He shares the stories of Alberto Magelli, a small textile entrepreneur; Livia Firth, a prominent advocate for sustainability; Elisa Martelli, a young Sangiovese winemaker; Enrico Giovannini, a leading economist and statistician; Rino Pratesi, a proud butcher from the heart of Tuscany; and more. From the overworked to the unemployed, we're all grappling with difficult questions about our current disorienting world: Will we ever feel healthy again, and what will it take to regain "normality?" What does progress mean today? Have science and technology let us down? What will the increased prevalence of remote working mean for our cities, and for our lifestyles generally? Deftly weaving together the personal and the economic, Nesi takes us on a fascinating journey to understanding.
