"[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

He begins to believe that he has contracted leprosy from her so that he not only has to flee the moral guilt but the possible stigma of his uncleanness. AWOL, evading chances of being found out, frustratedly wandering, never completing associations with any of the military he meets, depending on whores, natives for safety, he returns to the scene of his crime, confronted by the girl's father and is at last saved by him.

41 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 273 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
