About this title


Meet Vittorio and Milo, two young grifters living by their wits in modern Turin, getting by on petty scams and swindles. The two young men have kept an idea in a back drawer for years, the Big C - the Big Con. They're sure it will make them rich, but so far they haven't been able to get it off the ground. Enter Milo's uncle Grissino, a con-man with years of experience. He immediately grasps the potential of the Big C and joins the enterprise. Along with Cristina, Milo's girlfriend and the object of Vittorio's hopeless passion, the four set out to prove that "the great Western economy has a protective net around it, but the holes are very big and it can be penetrated if you use a little imagination."
Currently in production as a film, the novel is an ironic picture of life among the lowlifes - adrift, opportunist, and alienated.
