  1. Great title for a book club event, because it’s so relevant to us in our post covid lockdown situation. Very thought provoking and gives you the opportunity to evaluate society and the norms that are imposed and accepted by us. Piranesi was tricked and taken advantage of, he went through a nervous breakdown and pressed the re-set button on everything he knew, re-born and completely innocent, walking barefoot in a hostile environment without any company. I found many parallels with our situation after lockdown, not everyone wants to rejoin society or return to what was considered normal, we are pushing towards a “new normal”. Recommended reading, 10/10.
