Synopsis of the book “Enrique Piana y su Media Valija”
I was born and grew up in a middle class family of Buenos Aires, and was looked after with a lot of care and with the example of two loving parents. I had everything I needed in my childhood and as a teenager I was educated at one of the best schools of Buenos Aires, going on to obtain my University degree. So… how did it come about that I became an international white-collar smuggler and thief? In this book I answer this question and describe what my illness was like as I succumbed to destructive addictions. I explain how I went from a lifestyle of uncontrolled luxury to having nothing and to being rejected by society as a whole, as well as losing the love of my own family and contact with them. I also tell how I was a slave of pleasure and desire, speaking in detail about my process of self-destruction that was the direct consequence of my compulsive addiction to money.
