For some reason, I have never read Magris. I know I should, I know I should. I will.

As for politics, I really would like some more details regarding your impression because I almost fell off my chair when I read that. Magris is one of Italy's main left wing intellectual, he presented hismelf in the elections a few year back against Berlusconi's candidates and is a strong advocate of a multicultural, open and strong political European Union. The little introduction written by the people who awarded him El premio principe de Asturias (Spain's biggest prize) gave of him the desciption of your typical enlightened European liberal.

So what elements of the book struck you as right-wing?
