A romanzo straight from the Italian streets where the melancholy dreams of Mafiosi become nightmares.
A young hired hitman with a handsome new revolver by his side lies dying in the gray and narrow streets of Naples. His father gave him that gun for his birthday. The gun never fired a shot and now the thief that stole a life has snatched that shining weapon.
Peppino Lo Cicero spent his life taking orders from the great dons of Napoli. When his son Nino is killed he puts down the fishing rods of his retirement and picks up his old pistols, looking for revenge. Shots ring out over Peppi’s gray head once again as he searches for his son’s murderers and the beautiful black revolver he gave to Nino on the last night of his life.
The fabric of their lives has always been shot through with violence but as Peppino clings to his quest for vengeance he reconsiders that which has always been precious to him. Spare, romantic and slightly surreal, it is truly a terrible thing for a father to have to bury his son.

Read information about the authorIgor Tuveri was born in 1958 in Cagliari on Sardinia. He is known as a comic author under the pseudonym »Igort«. When he was twenty, he moved to Bologne where his career began and, in 1978, he published works in »Linus«, the first Italian comic magazine that was aimed especially at an adult readership. In the years following this, he founded the independent magazines »Il Pinguino« und »Dolce Vita« with Daniele Brolli, Roberto Baldazzini, Lorenzo Mattotti and Giorgio Carpinteri. They formed the »Valvoline« artists‘ collective, which was soon to be joined by American cartoonist Charles Burns.
The slim volume »Il letargo dei sentimenti« (1993: tr. The lethargy of the senses) is among the first of his titles to be available in German. Igort is also one of the first European comic authors to have published in Japan. In 1994, he took part in the Biennale in Venice. And he was commissioned with the concept development for the Japanese Manga publisher Kōdansha in the »Yuri« series (1996). In 2000, he finally founded his own publishing house, Coconino Press, in which he not only releases new works by international authors and illustrators, but also genre classics, such as Jacques Tardi, Daniel Clowes and Adrian Tomine. In his graphic novels and series, he mixes different techniques, often doing without larger text blocks over several pages and thus creating an atmosphere that is generated purely by the power of the illustrations. For »Fats Waller« (2004), he took his inspiration from Film Noir, among other genres, while the historical background of this thirties panorama that revolves around jazz pianist Waller also plays a significant role. Between 2008 and 2009, Igort travelled through the Ukraine, Russia and Siberia, carrying out research for his two volumes »Quaderni ucraini« (2010; tr. Reports from the Ukraine. Memories of USSR times) and »Quaderni russi« (2011; tr. Reports from Russia. The forgotten war in the Caucasus). In these, he combines illustrations with longer passages of text with great virtuosity, creating a compelling documentary portrait between past and present.
Igort has received prizes at numerous festivals for his comic novels. »Cinque è il numero perfetto« (2002; tr. 5 is the perfect number) was named Comic of the Year in 2003 at the Frankfurter Book Fair and, in 2011, he was given the Special Prize of the jury at the Comic Festival in Naples. In Treviso, he won two prizes in the same year, among others for »Baobab« as the best series. He was also a member of the jury at the Festival d’Angoulême in 2011. In addition to his artistic and publishing activities, he has also worked as an author and a presenter in Italian radio (RAI) and has written scripts. Igort lives in Paris.
