This new, expanded collection of Antonio Tabucchi's stories collects the best short fiction from the Italian author recognized as one of the masters of the form.

Message From the Shadows is a new collection featuring Antonio Tabucchi's finest short stories, spanning the breadth of his career. These playful tales explore Tabucchi's signature themes, from his inventive, lyrical meditations on language, art, and philosophy, to his fascination with the passage of time, and the mystery of storytelling.

About the Author

Antonio Tabucchi was born in Pisa in 1943, where he still lives. His previous fiction includes Little Misunderstandings of No Importance and Indian Nocturne - now a film - which won the Prix Medici Etranger in 1987. Both of these titles are published by Vintage.

Tim Parks, the translator, lives in Italy and has won critical acclaim for his own writing.

Industry Reviews

"Tabucchi's prose creates a deep, heart-wrenching nostalgia and constantly evokes the pain of recognizing the speed of life's passing which everyone knows but few have the strength to accept... wonderfully thought-provoking and beautiful."
Alan Cheuse, NPR's All Things Considered (for The Flying Creatures of Fra Angelico)

"Tabucchi's work has an almost palpable sympathy for the oppressed."
The New York Times
