About

Katia dreams of discovering her talent: something to be the best in the world. The opposite of her twin brother Bruno who just wants to live.
Katia is different from the other girls and can neither be what her parents would like her to be nor what society would expect her to be.
Katia is like Bruno and Bruno is like Katia.
This is the story of their true talent.
“She wishes to fall asleep, swallowed up by that eternal blue-grey movement, where everything is as it seems. The sea is the sea, the sky is the sky, the fishes are the fishes and the light filtering under the water’s surface is never dark. Where Katia is Katia.”
An original and unconventional novel, shortlisted for the 2021 edition of the Italo Calvino Prize, it can be placed among the formation novels and has teenagers and their parents as an excellent target audience.
