From Library Staff

Just discovered last year, I am proud to present a genre that is rare in Italian adult fiction outside of comics or the occasional Strega Nona rendition: the weird tale. Tarchetti's collection is a welcome breath of fresh air for horror and ghost story readers. Highly recommended.
