Notes:
Translated from the Italian.
The first English publication of this classic novel, it is a richly peopled portrait of the much-mythologised city, Naples. After a four-day deluge, Naples is flooded. Buildings collapse, sinkholes appear. Strange events spread across the city: ghostly voices emanate from a medieval castle and five-lire coins begin to play music, but only to ten-year-old children. A melancholy journalist searches for meaning as the narrative takes us into the minds of those who have suffered in the floods. Despite phenomenal initial success, the novel was withdrawn from publication at the author's request, and not reissued until after his death in 2012. Now translated into English for the first time, Malacqua remains a timely critique and a richly-peopled portrait of a much-mythologised city.
