Message From the Shadows is a new collection featuring Antonio Tabucchi's finest short stories, spanning the breadth of his career. These playful tales explore Tabucchi's signature themes, from his inventive, lyrical meditations on language, art, and philosophy, to his fascination with the passage of time, and the mystery of storytelling. A master of short fiction, Antonio Tabucchi won the Prix Medicis tranger for Indian Nocturne, the Italian PEN Prize for Requiem- A Hallucination, the Aristeion European Literature Prize for Pereira Declares, and was named a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government. Together with his wife, Maria Jose de Lancastre, Tabucchi translated much of the work of Fernando Pessoa into Italian. Tabucchi's works include The Flying Creature of Fra Angelico, The Woman of Porto Pim, and Little Misunderstandings of No Importance (all translated by Tim Parks), Tristano Dies and For Isabel- A Mandala (both translated by Elizabeth Harris, recipient of the National Translation Award), and Time Ages in a Hurry (translated by Martha Cooley and Antonio Romani). This new, expanded collection of Antonio Tabucchi's stories collects the best short fiction from the Italian author recognized as one of the masters of the form.
