Praise for Accabadora

“Set in 1950s Sardinia, Murgia’s lovely English–language debut…[is] a touching meditation on life and death and the power of love to bind, transcend, and let go.”—Publishers Weekly

“The result is an eloquent meditation on the role of death in a community. Accabadora, the winner of several Italian literary prizes, is concerned not only with the bonds between life and death, but also with what it costs to sever them.”—Booklist

“With its remarkable and timeless portrait of village life in Sardinia circa 1950, Accabadora tells the story of a young girl adopted by a remarkable woman who stands at the threshold of life and death. Poignant, honest, and magical, this is a dazzling story for the senses, and one I will not soon forget.” —Susan Sherman, author of The Little Russian
