One sweltering summer, in a forgotten corner of Italy, two very different lives collide.Pietro is eleven years old. His father is alcoholic, his mother mentally disturbed, and he dreams of running away. But before he can leave, a weary traveller arrives in town. This aging Casanova has a penchant for young women and flamenco. Life in Ischiano Scalo will never be the same again .'Ammaniti is not only a master storyteller but has a very nice line in sly humour as well . Forget Lucca, Siena and Cortona.

You'd be crazy not to visit Ischiano Scalo.'Michael Dibdin, Guardian'Exuberant and audacious.'Observer'You're a long way from tourist Italy with these lowlifes and deadbeats . their stories converge to a devastating climax, one that is entirely unexpected.'Independent on Sunday.
