No one knows how or why, but all over the world, people are returning from the beyond . . . and the rising of the dead is only the beginningDo you know when my father died? He died on January 11, 1979. The day before yesterday I was in the kitchen and I saw him standing in front of me, thirty years after I arranged his funeral. He was standing there naked, as if everything were perfectly normal, looking just the way he did when I buried him.They're coming back one by one. From the nineteenth century, from the Renaissance, from prehistoric times. They're not a threat. At least not at first. They're just like us, coming back into the world as lost and ravenous as when they were first born.But what is to become of the living?Adriano Karaianni is the doctor who discovers the reborn. Maria is expecting their first child, but childbirth has now become a crime and a threat to humanity. Their story emphasizes the destiny that all the living must face with the return of the dead.In spare, quick prose, Giacomo Papi describes the tenacity and ferocity of mankind when condemned to endless life. The story is a complex and heartfelt reflection on the meaning of existence, the connection between the world of the living and the dead, and love, which proves to be the only force capable of saving our humanity.
