Murder, Malaprops and Primitivo

From Ciao Asheville Book Suggestion Department
As the ONLY Italian Cultural Forum in Asheville, Ciao Asheville 
is  periodically called upon for their stamp of approval.

 


Since childhood, Helene Stapinski heard lurid tales about her great-great-grandmother, Vita.

In Southern Italy, she was a loose woman who had murdered someone.

Immigrating to America with three children, she lost one along the way.

Helene’s youthful obsession with Vita deepened as she grew up,

eventually propelling the journalist to Italy, where,

with her own children in tow, she pursued the story, determined to set the record straight.

“A murder mystery, a model of investigative reporting,
a celebration of the fierce bonds that hold families together through tragedies

Murder in Matera is a gem.” — San Francisco Chronicle
