In the streets of an ordinary Italian town, the people go about their everyday lives.

Day by day, in his imagination, he is rehearsing for his greatest performance. Yet when his moment comes, nothing could have prepared him for what happens...

Review:

"One of the most effective and penetrating studies of being a fanatic" ( Financial Times)

"Written with the beautiful claity and sharp edges of a cut crystal" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Malouf is a lyrical story-writer, making music of long, clause-enriched sentences, yet one of his strengths is his ability to manage contrasts" ( Sydney Morning Herald)

Book Description:

'Like the dreams that regularly perturb their characters, the short novel and the two stories gathered here are intensely enigmatic' - Times Literary Supplement
