A writer of emotional power. — The Chicago Tribune.
Grazia Deledda always had a special relationship with animals and this collection — published here for the first time in English — explores that bond. In these stories, the animals are often depicted as true protagonists, with their own, rich inner lives. This collection is a must for any fan or scholar of Grazia Deledda — or for anyone that loves animals the way that Grazia Deledda did!
Grazia Deledda was born in Sardinia and, despite being forced to leave school at the age of 11, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1926, only the second woman to do so.
