"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

35 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dos noches recoge dos novelas, dos historias de dos escritores romanos que aparecen como el derecho y el revés de un único yo disperso, escéptico y melancólico. El primero de ellos, Graziano, es un periodista indolente de día y un escritor inédito de noche, con auténtico terror a la página en blanco, seductor desastrosamente torpe a quien sólo llega a serenar la tácita admiración de Dory Nelson, chica de compañía. Una noche, mientras trata de cubrir la noticia de un avistamiento extraterrestre a las afueras de Roma, es abducido por una alienígena dócil e impasible que lo conduce hasta su nave nodriza. El descontento y un inquieto aburrimiento, sin embargo, marcan la existencia de Adriano, protagonista de la segunda novela. Se trata de un escritor a quien todo le parece sin peso, evitable, aburrido, y que conduce desde Roma al santuario donde un amigo cineasta, un tal Fellini, está rodando los exteriores de su próxima película, Las noches de Cabiria. Más tarde, se trasladará a su casa de la costa
