This second edition concentrates upon social conditions in Scampia, and mainly upon the ‘Gomorrah’ girls, young women who are forced by poverty and crime to grow up before their time. Some of them end up as prostitutes working for the Mafia, some become addicts on drugs supplied by the Mafia and some become mothers at fourteen – or all three. Spada’s book – self-published, stapled together, a brilliant combination of the rough-hewn with the exquisite – is a memorial for a dead girl, a cri de coeur for vulnerable young women and a penetrating examination of the social ills resulting from a corrupt and rotten political system.
