about this item

"This is a book with a meaning and a force and a message."—Italo Calvino

"A marvellous writer!"—Roberto Saviano

Four days of rain trigger strange events across Naples: ghostly voices are heard and musical coins appear. As a journalist searches for meaning, we follow those enduring the floods. This portrait of a much-mythologized city captivated Italy when it was first published in 1977. Withdrawn at the author's request until his death in 2012, this is its first English publication.

Nicola Pugliese (1944-2012) was born in Milan, but lived almost all his life in Naples. His only novel, Malacqua, was published by Italo Calvino.
