Luciano Lamberti
The Rural Teacher

(La maestra rural)

Literary Fiction

  • 288 pages

An unsettling tale that uses an array of voices from one town to untangle the paranoid or supernatural story of a unique rural teacher. It is a story that becomes fragmented and covers many years and places, until arriving at terrible consequences for humanity. A fable on the origins of true poetry. A thriller without a crime or a detective, a suspense story that explores conspiracy theories, parallel realities, deranged rants and subtle doses of humor, and an eccentric narration that forces each reader to rise to the occasion as investigator.
