Agostino is the story of a sexual initiation. On the one hand, a boy of thirteen, who is still a child; on the other the mother, a widow, but still thriving and eager to live.

Finished this quick and thought-provoking tale of innocence lost over the Atlantic on my flight home. Coincidentally a great little beach read (only 102 pages) if you‘re in the mood for something a little more subtle yet intense at the same time. Excited to read a third Alberto Moravia novel someday. Highly recommend Boredom as well which I read in 2012.
