In this selection of stories, his first available in English, Siciliano deals with themes ranging from friendship and the devotion of the artist to his craft to love and betrayal, solitude, and death. Using a lucid and sparse language, tempered by irony, he casts his characters into a web suspended between reality and fable. In this dark place of polar forces and shifting shapes, his protagonists fluctuate between states of wakefulness and dream, energetic expectation and the futility of wailing. Sometimes they are engaged and passionate, sometimes they are passive or objective spectators at the unfolding of their own destiny. He lives in Italy.
