Winner of the Prix Goncourt, Laurent Gaudé’s The House of Scorta follows five generations of the infamous Scorta family as they struggle to survive in a small southern Italian village. While their scandalous history confronts them at every turn, they are blessed with an imposing pride and a relentless faith in their own power. The lyrical narrative is punctuated by the confessions of the elderly Carmela, revealing her family’s past of notorious crimes, forsaken loves, and long-buried secrets.
