Summary Excerpt Comments

I Stole the Rain tells a trio of unforgettable stories from the superstitious Italian province of Campania, where fizzy drinks are delivered by cart, old women sell gold to a furtive clientele, and the tobacconist’s daughter is a prize beyond imagining. In “I am Super Legend,” a local team of beer-swilling, smoking, perennial losers is dragged toward the dubiously prestigious championship by the coach’s son, who becomes cursed by his nickname, Super Legend. In “Look at Me,” a motherless boy tries to help his father’s best friend, the mute Cesare, who has fallen in love with their housekeeper Silvia. And in “The Child Comes Home,” a young boy disappears, and after losing everything and being forced to take up her grandmother’s questionably legal profession, his mother is consoled by her bickering sisters-in-law and her undying wish to hear a knock on her front door…

A sublime mixture of humor and pathos, and brimming with colorful characters, Elisa Ruotolo’s I Stole the Rain is an assured debut from one of Italy’s preeminent storytellers.
