ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Nella primavera del 1976 un vecchio indovino cinese avverte Terzani: «Attento! Nel 1993 corri un gran rischio di morire. In quell'anno non volare. Non volare mai». Dopo tanti anni il grande giornalista non dimentica la profezia, ma anzi la trasforma in un'occasione per guardare al mondo con occhi nuovi: decide infatti di non prendere aerei per un anno, senza tuttavia rinunciare al suo mestiere di corrispondente. Il 1993 diventa così un anno molto particolare di una vita già tanto straordinaria: spostandosi in treno, in nave, in auto, e talvolta anche a piedi, Terzani si trova a osservare paesi e persone della sua amata Asia da una prospettiva nuova, e spesso ignorata. Dopo oltre vent'anni di «viaggio» e oltre un milione di copie vendute, lette, rilette, prestate e regalate, "Un indovino mi disse" continua a parlarci con voce sempre nuova e avvincente.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels In The Far East": 
Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for an entire year, Tiziano Terzani--a vastly experienced Asia correspondent--took what he called "the first step into an unknown world. . . . It turned out to be one of the most extraordinary years I have ever spent: I was marked for death, and instead I was reborn." Traveling by foot, boat, bus, car, and train, he visited Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geography expanded under his feet. He consulted soothsayers, sorcerers, and shamans and received much advice--some wise, some otherwise--about his future. With time to think, he learned to understand, respect, and fear for older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity. He rediscovered a place he had been reporting on for decades. And reinvigorated himself in the process.
