New Italian book on Charlie's work!

Longtime friend of BCK, Davide Romagnoli has a new book out, Sineddoche, Charlie Kaufman, and you'll never guess what it's about! Says the Amazon blurb:

"Sineddoche, Charlie Kaufman" non è un libro biografico per spiegare chi è Charlie Kaufman, dove è nato e cos'ha fatto. E non è nemmeno un compendio esaustivo o una completa esegesi delle opere del regista, produttore e sceneggiatore statunitense. "Sineddoche, Charlie Kaufman" è un invito a conoscere uno degli artisti più interessanti della sua generazione e rivedere, leggendole, le sue pellicole. Tutti titoli ben noti al grande pubblico, come Essere John Malkovich, Il ladro di orchidee, Synecdoche e Anomalisa. Un libro che racconta i retroscena dei suoi film seguendo il filo rosso delle dichiarazioni più interessanti e geniali dell'autore di Se mi lasci ti cancello. Per approfondire i suoi virtuosismi espressivi o anche scoprirli per la prima volta. (Source)

... which Google Translate turns into:

Synecdoche, Charlie Kaufman "is not a biographical book to explain who Charlie Kaufman is, where he was born and what he did. Nor is it an exhaustive compendium or complete exegesis of the works of the American director, producer and screenwriter." Synodoche, Charlie Kaufman "is an invitation to get to know one of the most interesting artists of his generation and review his films by reading them. All titles well known to the general public, such as Being John Malkovich, The Orchid Thief, Synecdoche and Anomalisa. A book that tells the background of his films by following the red thread of the most interesting and ingenious statements of the author of Se mi mi ti ti cancell. To deepen his expressive virtuosity or even discover them for the first time.

Neat, no? Davide sent me a copy, and I can't read a lick of it, but the cover is great!
