Lives of the Saints

Nino Ricci

When young Vittorio Innocente’s mother, Cristina, is bitten by a snake in the family stable, no one sees the blue-eyed stranger leaving except for Vittorio. He struggles to keep his mother’s secret but secrets in a small village are hard to keep, and while Cristina’s belly gradually grows under her loose dresses, they find themselves shunned by their superstitious neighbors. A classic of Canadian literature, Lives of the Saints has earned many distinctions since it was originally published in 1990.
