Re: Books that made you cry

It was an Italian book, and maybe it's not known outside my country. It's called "Elianto", by a satirical Italian author (Stefano Benni). Just a little explanation (not spoiler): There is this boy, in an absurd country, where you have to answer to a TV survey every day, and answer like th...

Also Thief of Time, because the morning after I finished it, I was in school. The teacher was talking about D...
