Summary

Summary

The Rain Came Last is the first collection of Tucci's English-language stories to be published. Mary McCarthy remarks in her introduction that the material Tucci delineates lies 'somewhere between excruciated memory and 'happy' invention.' He writes of his childhood and adolescence in the remote Tuscany countryside where his family lived, dislocated from its grand and opulent past.
