Marcello Rubini, a frustrated 'serious' writer, does tabloid journalism to make ends meet. He spends every evening in Via Veneto awaiting the next scandal, party invitation, or sexual proposition. From an enigmatic woman named Maddalena, to wealthy intellectual Steiner's penthouse, to a famous actress named Sylvia, Marcello finds himself caught up in the carnival spectacle of nightlife and its fleeting happiness.

Marcello is consumed by self-doubt and unable to enjoy the success he has, and so stumbles on, dreaming of attaining the elusive sweet life

"[The film] follows burned-out celebrity director Guido through a series of daily encounters and wild daydreams, the first of which finds him ascending into the clouds during a traffic jam. Seeking solace and rejuvenation at a remote health spa for the rich and privileged, he continues to encounter journalists, his producer, his mistress, and most inconvenient of all, his aloof wife, Luisa. Flashing among past, present, future and fantasy, Guido longs to make a pure and honest film while his producer goads him into a big budget science fiction spectacle."--Container

38 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Flâneur inverted, paradoxical and light enlightenment, Flaiano walks through Rome and quietly watches her deteriorate. Common places, academics, ambitions, fashions and habits of a culture that, at the end of the sixties, we talk and sparla on are the object and the target of this book posthumous, extraordinary in its hilarious, fulminating icasticity. Miscellanea of stories, anecdotes, memories, scratchy definitions and poignant or disillusioned passions, La solitudine del satiro is crossed by an intellectual feeling that few of our writers have possessed: the intelligence put at the service of disenchantment, a lucid that is cynical and melancholy, but it can not veil love for literature and that, veil to veil the love for literature and the one, hindered, for life, which may even be in war with the literature." --Rough translation from back cover
