Publisher's Summary

Ambientato a Roma nel 1927, il capolavoro di Gadda prende avvio da un furto di gioielli a casa della vedova Menegazzi e dal brutale omicidio della bella e malinconica Liliana Balducci, avvenuto a distanza di qualche giorno nel medesimo palazzo di via Merulana. Protagonista dell’intrigo poliziesco, il commissario don Ciccio, alle prese con un groviglio di indizi, piste false e sospetti. Apparso a puntate su "Letteratura" nel 1946-47, il romanzo di Gadda uscì in volume nel 1957, ottenendo subito un’enorme risonanza, a tal punto da suscitare allo scrittore l’esclamazione: "Sono diventato una specie di Lollobrigido, di Sofio Loren".

Absolutely fabulous rendition of a great novel

Fabrizio Gifuni gives one of the best reading I have ever listened to and I have listened to many. His rendition of the many regional Italian accents (Roman, Neapolitan ,Veneto, etc) are just miraculous . I have loved the book and read it many years ago, so I tried the spoken version and was surprised how much Mr Gifuni adds to the written pages. What a performance! Its brilliance does justice to a tremendously intelligent and entertaining novel which is a true classic of modern Italian literature.
