The Island: Three Tales

by

The Island: Three Tales Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These three tales, all set in Italy, are intensely dramatic depictions of suffering, solitude, and mindless violence done to the spirit. Herling's command of language is matched by an unblinking observation of his characters' stumbling progress toward salvation. Herling is the author of A World Apart.

Table of Contents

The island — the tower — the second coming.
