From the acclaimed author of The Last Unicorn comes a new, exquisitely told unicorn fable for the modern age. Claudio Bianchi has lived alone for many years on a hillside in Southern Italy’s scenic Calabria. Set in his ways and suspicious of outsiders, Claudio has always resisted change, preferring farming and writing poetry. But one chilly morning, as though from a dream, an impossible visitor appears at the farm. When Claudio comes to her aid, an act of kindness throws his world into chaos. Suddenly he must stave off inquisitive onlookers, invasive media, and even more sinister influences. Lyrical, gripping, and wise, In Calabria confirms Peter S. Beagle’s continuing legacy as one of fantasy’s most legendary authors.

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Bronson Pinchot brings this fable to life with ease… Pinchot’s smooth, deep voice with just the hint of an accent helps to flesh out Claudio and the magical experience he has with the unicorn and her colt. Poetic and lyrical, Beagle’s prose has a beauty that Pinchot expertly brings out. Those who love fantasy will be quickly drawn into this magical story.” AudioFile
