A woman remembers a summer in her teens, and a cruise she and her father took, in an intense study of familial pain.

About the Author
Jaeggy's distillation of childhood is brought into English with telegraphic urgency by ALASTAIR MCEWEN, the acclaimed translator of Umberto Eco and Alessandro Baricco, and the emotions pressed out between Jaeggy's lines are enough to fill a tome of a thousand pages.

Umberto Eco is a professor of semiotics at the University of Bologna and the best-selling author of numerous novels and essays. He lives in Italy.
