O novo best-seller internacional de Umberto Eco. O romance que é um verdadeiro guide do mau jornalismo
Um grupo de redatores, reunido ao acaso, prepara um jornal. Não se trata de um jornal informativo; seu objetivo é chantagear, difamar, prestar serviços duvidosos a seu editor. Um redator paranoico, vagando por uma Milão alucinada (ou alucinado numa Milão normal), reconstitui cinquenta anos de história sobre um cenário diabólico, que gira em torno do cadáver putrefato de um pseudo-Mussolini. Nas sombras, a Gladio, a loja maçônica P2, o assassinato do papa João Paulo I, o golpe de Estado de Junio Valerio Borghese, a CIA, os terroristas vermelhos manobrados pelos serviços secretos, vinte anos de atentados e cortinas de fumaça — um conjunto de fatos inexplicáveis que parecem inventados, até um documentário da BBC mostrar que são verídicos, ou que pelo menos estão sendo confessados por seus autores.
Um perfeito guide do mau jornalismo que o leitor percorre sem saber se foi inventado ou simplesmente gravado ao vivo. Uma história que se passa em 1992, na qual se prefiguram tantos mistérios e tantas loucuras dos vinte anos seguintes. Uma aventura amarga e grotesca que se desenrola na Europa do fim da Segunda Guerra até os dias de hoje.
