This is Volpi's most intimate book, a project about his father: "My father died on August 2, 2014. He had told us that when his mother died, he kept a year of mourning in which he never stopped wearing a black tie. I decided to return to my literary mourning and I dedicated 2015 to a book that would allow me to remember him. During ten months I wrote ten essays: in view of his condition as a surgeon, at the beginning I only knew that each of them should refer to a part of the body, as well as to its cultural and political metaphors."
