An unpublished Bluebeard! An extraordinarily retelling by Charles Dickens. His response to those edifying books for children he so earnestly detested, describing them as “literature that produces idiots.” A masterpiece of black humour that magnificently combines parody and the grotesque, expertly translated into Italian by Angela Ragusa. Dreamlike and poetic, Fabian Negrin’s images take the story into a realm where anything is possible. An astonishing book that leaves one breathless right up to the finale, when a woman’s shrewdness literally makes the perfidious Captain disappear.
