VOLUNTARY WITNESS

Gianrico Carofiglio did a fantastic job in his debut novel making him achieve a spot at the top of prolific Italian authors of the century. When it comes to involuntary memory, researchers are mainly interested in the concept of these trauma-related intrusions, which generally involved some form of re-experiencing the event, including a sensory component e.

These intrusions, often termed " flashbacks ", make the victim feel as though they are reliving the trauma, and cause high levels of emotional arousal, and the sense of an impending threat. But don't worry, I'm harmless.

The third part sees Guido commit himself into defending his client to the very end and finally becoming the man that he can admire. As one of the victims of slavery I drank of the bitter water; but then, since destiny willed it so, and since I aided in bringing a solemn truth to the surface as a truth, perhaps I have no right to complain.

Abdou Thiam, a schoolteacher in his home country, can earn ten times as much selling fake handbags and watches at the coastal resorts near Bari. He has panic attacks, suffers from insomnia and most embarrassingly for him feels like bursting into tears whilst in public.

Fabio Paolicelli, currently serving a year sentence for drug peddling has no memory of taking part in the beating of a young boy in the green coat. Books for Italophiles. Guerrieri is image-conscious -- "The main thing is not to be seen ordering it" he says about decaffeinated coffee, sneaking to a "dismal bar five blocks away" to order it so that no one he knows will see him in the shameful act -- and Carofiglio uses the books and music they like to define some of his characters.

It shines through the book that he was a judge, in fact one of the judges who very bravely brought in guilty verdicts against Mafia defendants in the 90s trials that revolutiionized Italy's southern social structure.

The first-person narration worked well, too, letting us into the mind of the protagonist, no matter how awkward it was at times. He has written some of the best sci-fi books there is such as Dark Matter and Recursion. This implies that involuntary memory production occurs as a product of chaining from voluntary memory—deliberate recall of the past.

Coming from reading British and American crime fiction where every character, no matter their profession, aims to be the detective this was such a refreshing change.

A Witness for America

Guerrieri, in spite of himself, is intrigued by what the case doesn't have, proof, and what it does have, the defendant's improbable, unprovable, but true, alibi.
