Il Confine dell'inganno
Sergej Bortkiewicz

Vienna, Novembre 1945. Il compositore e pianista russo Sergej Eduardovich Bortkiewicz scrive al suo medico personale ed amico Hans Ankwicz von Kleehoven dal bagno della propria casa, dov’è rinchiuso da mesi e mesi senza ne luce ne acqua. Tutt’intorno a lui c’è solo devastazione, miseria, violenza e morte. In una parola, è la Guerra, la più spaventosa mai vista da un essere umano: la Seconda Guerra Mondiale.
