Christelle | 1158 comments Hi guys,

Could you please change a few things for this book, ISBN 9782211235389?

First of all, it should be combined with:
- Murder in Matera: A True Story of Passion, Family, and Forgiveness in Southern Italy, ISBN 9780062438454

Pierre Szczeciner should be listed as the translator of this book.

ISBN10 should be 2211235387.

It is a paperback.

The language is French.

It has 325 pages if you're counting the table of contents.

You can find the cover here on Amazon.

The description should be:

---

Helene le sait depuis l'enfance, il y a une criminelle dans la famille. Sa mère lui a raconté inlassablement la légende, en touillant la sauce tomate, en coiffant ses cheveux noirs, en la préparant pour la messe. Vita, son arrière-arrière-grand-mère italienne, a tué un homme à la suite d'une partie de cartes. Seule avec ses deux fils, elle a fui le Sud pour s'installer à Jersey City, en 1892. Jusqu'à présent, Vita était une figure intimidante mais floue, comme la femme invisible des films de Scorsese ou Coppola. Mais, aujourd'hui, Helene a 39 ans. L'âge auquel Vita est arrivée en Amérique. L'âge auquel mouraient les femmes de sa région, à l'époque. Prise de panique à l'idée que ses propres enfants soient affligés du gène du crime qui, du grand-père voleur de homard au cousin consigliere de la Mafia, coule dans leur sang, Helene décide de conjurer le sort.
Elle entreprend des recherches fiévreuses, de cimetières en archives, dans cette Basilicate jadis arpentée par les grands hommes, Pythagore, Spartacus ou Horace, mais ravagée, au XIXe siècle, par la misère, la famine, la malaria et le droit de cuissage du padrone.
Au bout de dix ans, au bout de ses voyages, au bout de son enquête, la vraie Vita l'attend.

Thanks in advance!

Sandra | 26903 comments Does that mean that the table of contents is numbered with roman numerals? What is the last page numbered?

Fixed the rest of the corrections & cover.

Also adding the kindle edition.

Christelle | 1158 comments Hi Sandra,

No, the table of contents is numbered as the rest of the book, with the classic numbers. After that, there is a few blank pages, that's why I didn't include them in the page number.

Tell me what you think.

Thanks for the other (many) updates :)
