In a farmhouse deep in the Italian countryside a horrifying act of violence occurs. The one family survivor from this vendetta is four-year-old Nina. And she lives only because of an extraordinary act of mercy. Many years later, as a woman in her fifties, Nina meets her childhood saviour and revisits the events of that fateful night, events which have shaped her entire life. Without Blood is a haunting novella about longing, memory and forgiveness from the much-loved author of Silk. 'Tantalising and effortlessly evocative. Written in spare, electrically charged prose, it is a haunting psychological study of violence and passion.' Age Alessandro Baricco is the author of several works of fiction including, Ocean Sea, Silk, and City. He has won the Prix Medicis Etranger in France and the Selezione Campiello, Viareggio, and Palazzo del Bosco literary prizes in Italy. His international bestseller Silk has been translated into twenty-seven languages and is the basis of an opera by Andre Previn and a major motion picture to be produced by Miramax. textpublishing.com.au
