Modern Naples is a city teeming with contradictions. A chaotic metropolis in which modernity collides with history, it is also a frenetic port city whose inhabitants are as volatile as the city itself. From this rough mix Parrella has drawn the four exceptional novellas that comprise For Grace Received. The stories in his collection represent some of the finest short fiction to have emerged from Italy in recent years. This is the UK debut of a remarkable new literary talent.
