    Alessandro Baricco is a writer, director, and performer whose work has been published all over the world. He has won the Prix Medicis Etranger in France and the Selezione Campiello, Viareggio, and Palazzo al Bosco prizes in Italy.
    From one of Italy's most respected literary voices, a manifesto on the state of global culture and how connectivity is changing the way we experience it. For the gatekeepers of traditional high culture, the rise of young ambitious outsiders has indeed seemed like nothing short of a barbarian invasion. In this concise and powerful manifesto, Alessandro Baricco explores a handful of realms that have been "plundered"-wine, soccer, music, and books-and extrapolates that it is not a case of old values against new but a widespread mutation that we are all part of, leading toward a different way of having experiences and creating meaning.
