About this title


Two men and two women—successful Milanese professionals and lifelong friends—set off on an urbane mission from Milan with their estate agent, determined to discover Umbrian properties to buy and renovate into luxurious country homes. But as darkness descends and the roads become narrower, the travelers' concentration wanes, and they find themselves lost, their car in a ditch, and their cell phones without coverage, in the Umbrian rain. From these simple but ominous beginnings, De Carlo's novel grows into a broad, ambitious, and unsettling exploration of modern urban values. When they fall into the hands of an aggressive agri-naturist community, perspectives shift between the five protagonists as a tense series of events forces the characters to reevaluate every principle, belief, and thought they have ever held to be true. A jaunt into the Italian countryside becomes a harrowing journey into the soul.

About the Author:

Andrea De Carlo was born and grew up in Milan, Italy.
After graduating from the State University of Milan with a degree in modern literature, he traveled extensively in the United States, Europe and Australia.
In 1981 Einaudi published his first novel, Treno di Panna ("Creamtrain"), for which Italo Calvino wrote an introduction. A movie adapted from the book would later be produced.
His second novel, "Uccelli da gabbia e da voliera" ("Cage and Aviary Birds"), published in the spring of 1982, was praised by legendary film director Federico Fellini, who offered De Carlo the chance to work as his assistant director.
Andrea De Carlo has written a total of seventeen novels: "Treno di panna" (Creamtrain), "Uccelli da gabbia e da voliera" ("Cage and Aviary Birds"), "Macno", "Yucatan", "Due di due" (Two Out of Two"), "Tecniche di seduzione" ("Techniques of Seduction"), "Arcodamore", "Uto", "Di noi tre", "Nel momento", "Pura vita", "I veri nomi", "Giro di vento" (Windshift"), "Mare delle verità" ("Sea of Truth"), "Durante", "Leielui" ("She and He") and "Villa Metaphora".
His novels have been translated into 26 languages.
