PONTESCURO

PONTESCURO

Literary & General

Genre:

Luca Ragagnin

Author:

Publisher:

Miraggi Edizioni

Everyone lies. About who they are, and about what they want. To others, as well as to themselves. 
It takes the murder of the beautiful and much coveted daughter of the local landlord to reveal the truth about the villagers of Pontescuro, a small village in the north of Italy; about who they really are, and how petty and small their hearts can be.
This is a story about the courage it takes to be oneself and the cowardice of denying this freedom of identity; revealing, in the clash, our collective human fragility.

Set in Italy in 1922, the new novel by breakthrough author and Strega nominee Luca Ragagnin is literary fiction at its best.
