Summer in Rome and the Eternal City glitters with an elusive, definitive beauty. Sixty-five-year-old Jep Gamberdella still exerts a charm undiminished by the passing years. In his youth he wrote a novel The Human Apparatus, but hasn't written a book since. He has become a very important journalist who mixes with Roman high society and is seen at all the right parties.
