display_description On the solitary island of Procida, in the Bay of Naples -- a land volcanic in origin, where wildflowers blossom bear ab=cient craters -- the adolescent Arturo Gerace lives a quiet, almost feral existence roaming the wild countryside and the pebbled beaches, or reading in his family's isolated, dilapidated mansion. His mother long dead and his father often absent, the self-educated Arturo revels in his idyllic solitude until it is shattered by the arrival of the alluring Nunziatella -- his father's sixteen-year-old bride. -- from book jacket.
