Il testo, autobiografico, racconta la storia di Maurizio Maresca, ingegnere meccanico, prima manager e poi imprenditore e consulente. La narrazione parte dagli anni dello studio e della formazione, e si snoda per oltre sessant’anni, a cavallo tra XX e XXI secolo; ne emerge una figura di uomo dedito al lavoro, pronto al sacrificio, innamorato della sua professione. Il racconto, in ordine cronologico, è reso più accattivante dalla presenza di aneddoti, “fattarielli”, barzellette, episodi di vita quotidiana, che accompagnano la descrizione delle molteplici esperienze lavorative del protagonista e delle emozioni di tutti i personaggi. Sullo sfondo, le vicende nazionali e internazionali, dalla nascita del mercato globale alla caduta del Muro di Berlino, dall’attentato alle Torri Gemelle alle prime privatizzazioni, passando per quelle che l’autore ritiene le principali opere degli ultimi decenni a Napoli: la Tangenziale e il Centro Direzionale.

TV Go Home
Author: Charlie Brooker
Publisher: Faber & Faber
TV Go Home began life in the late 1990s as an outrageously funny website by Charlie Brooker which parodied the Radio Times, and was turned into a book in 2001 when Brooker was still a relative unknown. It was a brutal and surreal satire of the world of TV, media and celebrity, written with Brooker's trademark savage wit. Unavailable for some years, we are republishing it to reach his many thousands of new fans. In TV Go Home, visit a parallel world where reality TV and 'new media' have got completely out of control. Shows include Daily Mail Island, where inhabitants of a small island are force-fed the newspaper and become ever more outraged, an eternal version of Watchdog where viewers are invited to 'phone in and complain about every single facet of every single object, product and service in the world' and various extremely rude shows featuring Mick Hucknall's testicles. Star of the book is Brooker's famous creation Nathan Barley, pretentious Hoxton new-media type 'whose very existence indelibly tarnishes the world's already questionable track record'. Not for the faint-hearted, TV Go Home is a gloriously funny, filthy and spectacularly angry book.
