Summary, etc.:
An English translation of a first Italian-language novel by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Lowland" follows the routines of a misfit city dweller who experiences a year of remarkable transformation in the aftermath of a parent's death
A woman wavers between the need to belong and the refusal to form lasting ties. The city she calls home acts as a confidant: the sidewalks around her house, parks, bridges, piazzas, streets, stores, coffee bars. The train station sometimes leads her to her mother, mired in a desperate solitude after her father's untimely death. In addition to colleagues at work, where she never quite feels at ease, she has girl friends, guy friends, and "him," a shadow who both consoles and unsettles her. But in the arc of a year transformation awaits. One day at the sea, both overwhelmed and replenished by the sun's vital heat, her perspective will change. -- adapted from back cover
