Synopsis: Pascal, a landowner fallen on hard times and trapped in a miserable marriage, runs away from home and wins a lot of money at the gaming tables in Monte Carlo. Meanwhile, a dead body has been found in his village, and his neighbors assume it is Pascal- that he has killed himself. Seizing the chance to create a new life, Pascal travels to Rome under an assumed name, struggles to invent a different identity, fails, and returns home. There, he finds his wife has remarried. Now he must act out the role of a living ghost. These tragic events are recounted with verve and wit in Simborowski's spirited translation.
About the Author: Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) was born in Sicily into a prosperous middle-class family. After studying at Palermo, Rome and Bonn Universities, he began to write, but when his father went bankrupt and his wife became ill, he considered suicide. Instead, he wrote this, the real beginning of his literary career. Today he is known for Six Characters in Search of an Author, numerous novels and short stories.
