From the Back Cover:

The Rain Came Last is the first collection of Tucci's English-language stories to be published. Mary McCarthy remarks in her introduction that the material Tucci delineates lies 'somewhere between excruciated memory and 'happy' invention.' He writes of his childhood and adolescence in the remote Tuscany countryside where his family lived, dislocated from its grand and opulent past.

About the Author:

Born in Switzerland of an Italian mother and a Russian father, Niccolo grew up in privileged circumstances that were eliminated by the Bolshevik Revolution. His family relocated to Tuscany. In 1938, he resigned a position with Mussolini's Press Ministry and immigrated to the US. He wrote numerous short stories and a few longer works, many of which are largely autobiographical.
