Essays from the man who defied the mafia

Beauty and the Inferno. - Roberto Saviano, Saviano

Beauty and The Inferno is a series of essays that illustrates the high price that can be paid for courageous writing.
In this book, Saviano goes into politics, corruption, drugs, sport and music, sharing a variety of articles.
The book can tease, shock, anger, entertain and educate you, all at the same time.
The book is also about hope and the power of art and talent to overcome difficulties. It also provides some unique insight into Saviano's life in hiding, while under permanent police protection since Gomorrah's publication in 2006.
