'Rich. . . eclectic. . . a feast' Telegraph


Jhumpa Lahiri's landmark collection brings together forty writers that reflect over a hundred years of Italy's vibrant and diverse short story tradition, including well known authors such as Italo Calvino, Elsa Morante and Luigi Pirandello, alongside many captivating rediscoveries.


Poets, journalists, visual artists, musicians, editors, critics, teachers, scientists, politicians, translators: the writers that inhabit these pages represent a dynamic cross section of Italian society.


'An enticing collection . . . the tales are by turns startling, moving, intriguing and provocative' The Times Literary Supplement
