Additional infos: The Absent-minded God is a novel which the Italian writer Giuseppe Dessì, who was at that time living on the opposite as Maria Lai, wrote while watching Maria attending her working sessions with her threads at her front window. After the text was written, Maria Lai reinterpreted the words through the lens of her very personalized images, which now compose a very precious limited edition book, with original threads interventions executed by the artist on each page.
The original version of this book was published in a posthumous volume under the name of Un pezzo di luna.
