Dispute Over a Very Italian Piglet by Amara Lakhous.
This multiethnic mystery pays homage to the cinematic tradition of the commedia all’italiana as it lightheartedly probes the challenges and joys of life in a newly multicultural society. Amara Lakhous was born in Algiers in 1970 and now lives in Italy where he has won the prestigious Flaiano prize for his second novel.
