Dolcissimo

by Giuseppe Bonaviri

Translated from Italian
by Umberto Mariani

THE PHYSICIAN Ariete returns to his Sicilian birthplace to investigate the mysterious disappearance of its villagers. There he and the psycho-ethnologist Mario Sinus discover a magic world of archaic gods, rituals, and beliefs that may provide redemption from the destructive forces of modern life.

Bonaviri’s mixture of magic realism, a pre-modern “scientific” learning, and a deep ecological awareness make this novel a fascinating and original experiment.
