The Story of My Purity by Francesco Pacifico

"Ho, ho and ho! Insanely funny and terrifically offensive, Francesco Pacifico’s novel fell on my head like a bowling ball and knocked me the hell out. Among many other things, it’s also a great updating of Roman life. American publishers don’t really translate from the Italiano anymore, so it’s great to see a worthy translation of what is sure to be a modern Italian classic."
—Gary Shteyngart, author ofSuper Sad True Love Story
