By Semplici Andrea,Orlando Gabriele

Dall'America Latina di Ernesto Guevara al Cile di Pablo Neruda, dalla Venezia di Corto Maltese all'Africa del "Paziente inglese" o dei rasta di Bob Marley, fino a Ryszard Kapuscinski e Bruce Chatwin, un giornalista ripercorre i passi di personaggi indimenticabili, raccontando, oggi, i luoghi e gli incontri che ne hanno segnato le storie. Un grande viaggio letterario che si nutre di reportage e visioni, alla ricerca di ciò che è accaduto (e può quindi essere raccontato) e di ciò che, dell'esistenza di ognuno, può essere soltanto immaginato. Questa edizione è arricchita, rispetto alla precedente, di cinque nuovi racconti, da Arthur Rimbaud alle donne del deserto.
