ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Il romanzo è un'esplorazione attenta della prima realtà verso le sorgenti non inquinate della vita. L'isola nativa rappresenta una felice reclusione originaria e, insieme, la tentazione delle terre ignote. L'isola, dunque, è il punto di una scelta e a tale scelta finale, attraverso le varie prove necessarie, si prepara qui, nella sua isola, l'eroe ragazzo-Arturo. È una scelta rischiosa perché non si dà uscita dall'isola senza la traversata del mare materno; come dire il passaggio dalla preistoria infantile verso la storia e la coscienza.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Imbued with a spectral grace, as if told through an enchanted looking glass, the novel follows the adolescent Arturo through his days on the isolated Neapolitan island of Procida, where-his mother long deceased, his father often absent, and a dog as his sole companion-he roams the countryside and the beaches or reads in his family's lonely, dilapidated mansion. This quiet, meandering existence is upended when his father brings home a beautiful sixteen-year-old bride, Nunziatella.
