Finalist for the 2016 PEN Literary Award for TranslationIn this courageous, inventive, and intelligent novel, Viola di Grado tells the story of a suicide and what follows. She has given voice to an astonishing vision of life after life, portraying the awful longing and sense of loss that plague the dead, together with the solitude provoked by the impossibility of communicating. The afterlife itself is seen as a dark, seething place where one is preyed upon by the cruel and unrelenting elements.Hollow Heart will frighten as it provokes, enlighten as it causes concern. If ever there were a novel that follows Kafkas prescription for a book to be a frozen axe for the sea within us, it isHollow Heart.From the Trade Paperback edition.
