I’m Still Alive
Here’s the outline of I’m Still Alive from the writer:
When journalist Roberto Saviano wrote the groundbreaking worldwide bestseller Gomorrah, he uncovered the interior workings of the Naples mafia, leading to real-world investigations into the corruption on the coronary heart of the Camorra. But with the pursuit of justice and worldwide renown got here violent loss of life threats and the necessity for an remoted existence behind armed guards, which Saviano suffers to at the present time. Joined by award-winning cartoonist Asaf Hanuka, Saviano shares his deepest ideas and expertise of life in Naples, the place he witnessed the facility and violence of the mafia firsthand, in addition to the unvarnished reality of his day by day life after exposing essentially the most ruthless and highly effective legal organizations of the twenty first century.
In a quote included within the press release, Saviano stated:
“In I’M STILL ALIVE, resistance is expressed through the artillery of the written word and through the boundary of one’s body, understanding that, from any fight, you learn one rule and one rule only: it is not true that from battle you will either come back alive or you won’t come back at all. In the event of your return, you will return wounded, mutilated in body and soul. I’M STILL ALIVE is the story of my wound.”
Meanwhile, Hanuka had this to say concerning the challenge:
“Working with Roberto Saviano made me realize that freedom, which I enjoy as an endless resource, is not to be taken for granted. Roberto lost his freedom and the chance to live a normal life. But he never lost his words, he never stopped writing. The work on the book was both inspiring and challenging. Inspiring because it’s a story of someone who always spoke for those who don’t have a voice, no matter what the price was. And challenging because his writing is made of metaphors, emotions and reflections. I had to find a visual language that corresponded to the complexity of the writing. The result was an unforgettable journey into his soul.”
