young Graziella seeks out a fortune teller who sees "Blood, blood, blood!" in her future. She and her twin brother Micky have just been cheated on by their respective partners.

"Merlo effortlessly writes extreme scenarios that seem normal in a house of “clowns"; and makes their peculiar ways of communication seem convincing enough that you’d think this could happen in your neighbor’s backyard."
