In Calabria
In Calabria | Peter S Beagle
15 posts | 14 read | 19 to read
From the acclaimed author of The Last Unicorn comes a new, exquisitely-told unicorn fable for the modern age. Claudio Bianchi has lived alone for many years on a hillside in Southern Italy s scenic Calabria. Set in his ways and suspicious of outsiders, Claudio has always resisted change, preferring farming and writing poetry. But one chilly morning, as though from a dream, an impossible visitor appears at the farm. When Claudio comes to her aid, an act of kindness throws his world into chaos. Suddenly he must stave off inquisitive onlookers, invasive media, and even more sinister influences. Lyrical, gripping, and wise, In Calabria confirms Peter S. Beagle's continuing legacy as one of fantasy's most legendary authors."

Claudio Bianchi is a cranky old farmer living “in the toe of the Italian boot” who tends his scraggly land all alone...

until one day he finds a unicorn in his fields.

This book was wonderful and you should go read it.

“He knew something of sorrow, remembered joy, and devoutly hoped - as much as he consciously hoped for anything other than proper allotments of sunshine and rainfall - never again to encounter either of those two old annoyances.”

“He had no vanity about this, no fantasies about literary celebrity: he simply took pleasure in putting words in order, exactly as he laid out seedlings in the spring, and tasting them afterward, as he tasted fresh new scallions or ripe tomatoes, or smelled mint or garlic on his hands.”

I started reading this book like 20 minutes ago and I HATE that I have to get back to work because I don't want to stop reading it! 😫

I feel like it's one of those books I could read in one sitting.

As someone who used to read almost exclusively unicorn books as a pre-teen, this book evoked the same feelings all over again. The discovery, the heartache, the longing, the fantasy of it all. Lovely and sad and glorious. Bless this man and his writing.

Sigh. I love Peter Beagle, really I do, and I did finish this one, but I couldn't really get into it. His language and imagery are gorgeous, and the story was interesting, but... something was lacking, and I'm not sure what. Still, it was lovely, and I'm glad I read it.

Just got this one early at my local Barnes & Noble! Wondering how different it is compared to The Last Unicorn. Either way it should be good.
