This epistolary novel by the grande dame of Italian literature is set in 1743, when the plague ravaged Sicily. Two friends write to each other about the horrors they experience. Meanwhile, the husband of one friend, who also loves the other, travels back and forth between the two. »Trio« is a book about friendship, but also about loss and the end of all familiar structures.
