Giancarlo De Cataldo is an Italian novelist–notably the author of Romanzo Criminale, and most recently co-author of Suburra, which was adapted as a film and a Netflix seriesessayist, and the author of numerous screenplays for TV, and a magistrate. He lives in Rome.


As 2017 comes to an end, what book could you suggest that people read to reflect on this year’s tumultuous events and why do you recommend it?


I recommend Salman Rushdie's The Golden House because it deals with today's burning issues, such as the relationship between inclusion and exclusion among the social classes (which still exist; thank you for reminding us), and the splendours and miseries of the politically correct. And because he quotes Leonard Cohen with affection and finally, because the book makes use of Rushdie's inimitable humour.
