The Information is a novel which narrates the friendship between two forty year old men, former fellow students. Both are unlucky writers, they live their profession and they meet each other frequently. But the unsuccessful writer viscerally hates the other one, unaware successful novelist, even if he keeps spending time with him. The story, cleverly conceived and wisely narrated, is the pretext to blame the entire publishing world , real protagonist of the event: the stereotypes linked to the literary world are pilloried, making the most sordid sin shine in every page, envy. Striking is the parallelism of human events and the mysterious motions of the cosmos, to which the narrator often refers, while London shines in the background, in one thousand shades. A writing that is successful in being original and captivating, with an uncommon beautiful incipit.
