"Il soggetto è storico: la presa da parte dei Turchi, nel tardo Quattrocento, della cittadina pugliese d'Otranto. Ma io, più che il soggetto, lo chiamerei lo sfondo, tutt'altro che decorativo ma vivo e vero nel suo tumultuare di galeoni, di scimitarre e di bombarde, se non addirittura un felice pretesto,

Un libro che sa essere avvincente, ricco di sfumature. Soprattutto le descrizioni sono particolarmente accurate, dettagliate e affascinanti. Proprio l'ambiente in cui vivono i personaggi sembra rispecchiare la intensità delle loro emozioni.
Sotto cinque punti di vista diversi, seguendo vicende di amori, rancori, assalti, si riassumono le forti vicende che afflissero la città di Otranto nel luglio del 1480.
