Synopsis

Winner of Frances most prestigious literary award, Laurent Gaudés 'The House of Scorta' spans five generations in a small village in southern Italy. Beginning in 1870 with Rocco Scorta Mascalzone, a notorious brigand who leaves his children penniless, the saga of the Scortas is one of infamous crimes, forsaken loves, and lifelong secrets. Years of struggle produce only a small family-owned tobacco shop, but the familys real wealth lies in a storehouse of memories and a stubborn pride in its own power. Presented in a stunning, stark style, Gaudés epic tells the story of a family slowly rising from ruin.
