Kirkus Reviews “New and Notable Title” of the Month

From the acclaimed author of The Last Unicorn comes a new, exquisitely told unicorn fable for the modern age.

Claudio Bianchi has lived alone for many years on a hillside in Southern Italy’s scenic Calabria. Set in his ways and suspicious of outsiders, Claudio has always resisted change, preferring farming and writing poetry. But one chilly morning, as though from a dream, an impossible visitor appears at the farm. When Claudio comes to her aid, an act of kindness throws his world into chaos. Suddenly he must stave off inquisitive onlookers, invasive media, and even more sinister influences.

Lyrical, gripping, and wise, In Calabria confirms Peter S. Beagle’s continuing legacy as one of fantasy’s most legendary authors.

Review Quotes

“Narrator Bronson Pinchot brings this fable to life with ease… Pinchot’s smooth, deep voice with just the hint of an accent helps to flesh out Claudio and the magical experience he has with the unicorn and her colt. Poetic and lyrical, Beagle’s prose has a beauty that Pinchot expertly brings out. Those who love fantasy will be quickly drawn into this magical story.”


“Love in a world of hardship, loss, magic, and recovery.”

Gregory McGuire, New York Times bestselling author

In Calabria holds the power to transform, like the touch of the unicorn at its heart.”

Laurie R. King, New York Times bestselling author

“It’s punchy and frank, with a simple, direct style that mirrors Bianchi’s straightforward inner life.”


“Beagle’s descriptions of Bianchi’s bucolic life remind me of J. R. R. Tolkien describing life in the Shire in The Lord of the Rings…There is more magic and romantic dignity in this novel, brimming with wisdom.”


“A lovely tale of finding magic in our world and the importance of protecting it while we have it.”


“Beagle’s kindly fable shows how a man who seems to have nothing can really have everything―with just a touch of magic.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A pleasing and pastoral look at the power of forgiveness…It stays tantalizing to the end.”
