Laura Pugno guides us with essential writing in the exploration of a powerful, fascinating, and perhaps prophetic imagination.

A biologist employed on a casual basis who lives in a container, Tessa is the last inhabitant of Stellaria, a nature reserve created by the university for research purposes, in the process of being cleared. She comes across Dasha, a feral child living in the forest where ten years earlier she was abandoned by her twin sister Nina, after both were orphaned by the Chernobyl disaster. A fairy tale in shades of noir, a philosophical novel and a family drama, La Ragazza Selvaggia gives a new and unusual twist to several themes that appeared in Laura Pugno’s first book, Sirene. In prose that is both terse and powerful, the author delves into a fictional world that is fascinating, original and perhaps prophetic.
