Synopsis: In this modern retelling of the Parsival legend, the throne belongs to the storyteller who keeps the community alive through the magic of myth and narrative. Only occasionally, by some hand of fate, does the outsider find and then refind the house of the throne as a stage in his own quest for meaning and love. The Wooden Throne, Sgorlon's most famous book, was awarded the prestigious Premio Campiello when it was published in 1973. It has gone through fifteen printings since and is now considered a twentieth-century Italian masterpiece. It has been translated into French, Spanish and Slavic. This was the first English edition of Il trono di legno or, indeed, of any of Sgorlon's literary work. His “Army of the Lost Rivers” was published in English by Italica in late 1998.

From the Publisher: "One of the most firmly established of contemporary Italian writers." (Mondadori)
