5.0 out of 5 stars Human Nature., 10 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Without Blood (Paperback)
Alessandro Baricco is not only an author but also a musician and an actor. He won several literary prices like the Premio Viareggio and the 'Prix Médicis étranger'.

A man and his two children live on a outlying farm. The father is a doctor and since the end of the last war (in an imaginary country) he's known as 'The Torturer'.

One day four men arrive at the farm to kill the doctor and his children as a revenge. Nina-the youngest daughter-hides herself in the basement. Tito-the youngest of the revengers and a mere child-comes after her but he doesn't kill her. They look each other in the eye and a fatal attraction arises between the two.

Many years later-they are old people now-they meet each other on the street of a town and they decide to have a drink in one of the cafés.

This is mainly a novel about attraction and repulsion between a man and a woman. They wage war between them, not with weapons but with words.
