Product Details

Praise

“Marciano’s latest is made up of six longish stories set mostly in a vibrantly described Rome, often involving animals as pets or predators . . . [The opening story] sucks the reader in immediately . . . and has a layered structure that gives it the rich, leisurely feel of a Fellini film . . . Death’s lasting power echoes back through the stories, but Marciano’s closing lines offer hard-won hope . . . Emotionally charged issues of commitment, loyalty, and trust explored with dry yet oddly comforting European wit.” 
Kirkus Reviews (Starred) 

“In Francesca Marciano’s new collection, Italians experience love and loss, violence, and madness, at home and abroad . . . The human couplings in Animal Spirit are fraught and consuming, but the animals set the stage. They are exotic, and erotic. Think about dancing with a seven-foot python wrapped around your body. And don’t forget the skimpy costume.” 
—Louisa Ermelino, Publishers Weekly
