Tales from the Italian South

£9.99

These eight stories by Angelina Brasacchio are set amid the rugged scenery and white sand beaches of the Italian South. But this is the Italy, not as seen by tourists, but of the inhabitants deeply rooted in the soil of Calabria. We are drawn into their everyday lives and particularly their relationships with ‘outsiders’ whether gypsies, American soldiers blown in by the winds of war, or refugees fleeing their homelands because of persecution or poverty.
