A stunning classic set in Italy’s most vibrant and turbulent metropolis – Naples – in the immediate aftermath of World War Two. These lively and superbly written stories helped inspire Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels. Ortese’s work was also championed by Italo Calvino, who was her Italian editor.

The stories and reportage collected in this volume form a powerful portrait of ordinary lives, both high and low, family dramas, love affairs, and struggles to pay the rent, set against the crumbling courtyards of the city itself, and the dramatic landscape of Naples Bay.
