This is not the complete novel! It appears to be a cut-down "teaser" version distributed by the publisher to encourage people to buy it! I hope that this is an innocent mistake and that Comrade Anonymous actually has the complete version... If not, maybe someone else can get hold of the full version and post it properly.

No problem, thanks for posting it.
You should see the edit button at the top, it will need admin approval though, because it's a library page.
Otherwise just post the link and someone else can edit it in for you.

I've read most of it. A wonderful novel... Even if it does go into workers' wage demands at Fiat Mirafiori in really tedious detail!
