Read full description of the books:
"A Pietralata, per educazione, non c’era nessuno che provasse pietà per i vivi, figurarsi cosa c... provavano per i morti."
(I wasn't able to find a translation for the quote above, and I apologize. It says something like, "In Pietralata, it was a matter of education to not take pity on the living, let alone on the f... dead." I apologize for the poor outcome of my attempt too.)
This is so a not-my-cup-of-tea situation, I am seriously wondering whether that phrase was invented solely to fit the eventuality of me reading this book. Probably, it was.
My main problem with Ragazzi di vita was that I wasn't capable, for the life of me, to tune in on the writing. Call it shallowness, if you will, but form, to me, is pivotal. With this, I'm not saying that the book is badly written; I'm saying it was not written for me. I am, to make it clear, fond (madly so) about 19th-century literature: fluid and full and harmonious where Pasolini, in the next century, is fragmented and messy and matter-of-fact. It was the perfect, probably the only, way to write this story, but I found it insufferable.
So, yes. Not my cup of tea.
