About Dacia Maraini 

Dacia Maraini is the author of novels, short stories, plays, poems and essays that have been translated in over twenty countries. In 1990 she won the Campiello Prize with La lunga vita di Marianna Ucria (The Silent Duchess) and in 1999 the Strega Prize (the most prestigious literary prize in Italy, since 1947), with Buio (Darkness)

TRIO (Threesome)

It’s an epistolary novel, which tells the story of two female friends and a man during the plague in Messina, in 1793.

Dacia Maraini’s return to historical narration after The Silent Duchess, one of her most loved books, is an intense and delicate tale, pervaded by colors and smells of her Sicily, which, through letters written to each other by the protagonists, speaks also of each of us, and of what can save us when everything collapses outside.
