ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Elena è giovane, Pietro è molto più vecchio di lei. Ma si sono scelti, e dalla loro relazione hanno deciso di tener fuori le ferite della vita di prima: fanno l'amore con il gusto di chi scopre tutto per la prima volta, bevono caipirinha quando lui torna tardi, si concentrano sull'ebbrezza del quotidiano. Quando Maria, l'ex moglie di Pietro, riesce a conoscere Elena con un inganno, la vita si complica per tutti. Le due donne si raccontano, si confidano e confrontano, e poco per volta la figura di Pietro si trasforma per tutt'e due. La scrittura affilata e rivelatrice di Cristina Comencini torna a illuminare i vortici e le secche delle relazioni, scegliendo la prospettiva di due donne rivali che in comune sembrano avere soltanto lo stesso uomo. Una turbinosa e vitalissima riflessione sulla complicità e sulla rivalità femminile. E su quella stanza tutta per sé a cui gli uomini - con questo romanzo - possono avere accesso.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Elena is young, Pietro is much older than her. But they have chosen each other, and from their relationship they have decided to keep out the wounds of life before: they make love with the taste of someone who discovers everything for the first time, they drink caipirinha when he comes back late, they concentrate on the intoxication of daily life. When Maria, Pietro's ex-wife, gets to know Elena through a deception, life becomes complicated for everyone. The two women tell each other, confide and compare, and little by little the figure of Peter is transformed for both of them. Cristina Comencini's sharp and revealing writing returns to illuminate the whirlwinds and shoals of relationships, choosing the perspective of two rival women who seem to have only the same man in common. A whirlwind and vital reflection on female complicity and rivalry. And on that room all to himself to which men - with this novel - can have access to.
