Il capro (The Scapegoat) by Silvia Cassioli is out in Italy

Il capro (The Scapegoat) by Italian Silvia Cassioli is published this October by Il Saggiatore in Italy.

Halfway between true crime and social portrait, Il capro explores a segment of Italian society in the ’70s & ’80s, more specifically a part of Tuscany where local customs and male-dominated perceptions overshadow the investigations into the sderial murders of young couples in the woods around Florence.

Silvia Cassioli (Tuscany, 1971) works as a fiction editor. She made her debut with two books of poetry, El gran magnùn de la Finanza (Manni), a poem in an invented language. Il Capro is her second novel.
