Valerio Evangelisti – Tortuga

 

One of the best Italian books of the last decade

Here there are neither imaginary pirates like the one played by Johnny Depp nor the epic pirates described by Salgari: these are real pirates, those who made History and that, according to the theory of the Evangelists, laid the foundations of our present era. Captivating, engrossing, intelligent and beautifully written. A must read.
