Racconti - Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Umberto Gandini This collection of short stories is probably the most inspiring book I have read in this year so far.
I confess how I have tried to imitate this way of writing several times but with pretty mediocre results.

I don't remember why the book doesn't reach a five stars rate as there were moments of absolute genius in these pages.

Let me add just one thing:
Dürrenmatt should have painted less and written more.
His drawings were absolutely poor compared to his stories.
