The beloved Peter S. Beagle returns with the powerful novel, IN CALABRIA. An old-fashioned farmer lives alone in Italy’s scenic Calabria, until a magical visitor appears to toss everyone into chaos.
From the acclaimed author of THE LAST UNICORN comes a familiar yet new, exquisitely-told fable for the modern age.
Claudio Bianchi has lived alone for many years on a hillside in Southern Italy’s scenic Calabria. Set in his ways and suspicious of outsiders, Claudio has always resisted change, preferring farming and writing poetry to the company of others. But one chilly morning, an impossible visitor appears at the farm. When Claudio comes to her aid, an act of kindness throws his world into chaos. Suddenly he must stave off inquisitive onlookers, invasive media, and even more sinister influences.
Lyrical, gripping, and wise, IN CALABRIA confirms Peter S. Beagle’s continuing legacy as one of fantasy’s most legendary authors.
The magic of IN CALABRIA comes your way this February.
