"Ask Coltrane" by Federico Fini (Emersioni Editore)

Moving to an apartment with his young wife and two young children, Andrea receives a visit from the ghost of his dog Coltrane, who died twenty-five years earlier. The man, addicted to jazz and the excesses of nightlife, has just begun to write again after years of inactivity, taking his cue from his relationship with his wife, who had cracked after the birth of her second child. When Andrea seems about to finish his novel, Coltrane leads him to discover Spice, an old man who lives in the attic of the apartment. The man, having abandoned the idea of writing, tries to find out why Coltrane and Spice have appeared to him and whether they have anything to do with their own destiny.

"Cruel Novellas. From the horror and the grotesque daily "by Francesco Cusa

Illustrated by Daniele La Placa (Eris Edizioni)

Esteemed professionals slaves of delirium consumed in the secrecy of their apartments, sadistic and avenging women who transform murder into virtues, lives twisted by subhuman logics and hallucinated perceptions that cannot have a happy ending. With irony, amazement and ill-concealed disgust, the narrator takes us to the center of a hell made up of small domestic tragedies with splatter tones, pathological morbidity of interpersonal relationships and repugnant kinship ties that can torment to the point of madness. Cusa's characters are driven by deformed mental mechanisms, monstrously trivial beings that only redeem themselves from an apathetic existence in unconsciousness and death. The author uses the fantastic, the most macabre horror and the surreal to tell us about the lowest moves the vices, instincts and morbidities of contemporary man. Cynic and merciless describes a sick humanity unable to redeem itself.
