Synopsis: THIN PATHS

This title is shortlisted for the 2011 Costa Biography Award and the 2012 Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize. Julia Blackburn and her husband moved to a little house in the mountains of northern Italy in 1999. She arrived as a stranger but a series of events brought her close to the old people of the village and they began to tell her their stories. Of how their village had been trapped in an archaic feudal system and owned by a local padrone who demanded his share of all they had - even a pretty wife or daughter, of the eruption of the Second World War, of the conflict between the fascists and the partisans, of death and fear and hunger of how they hid like foxes in the mountains. 'Write it down for us,' they said, 'because otherwise it will all be lost.' "Thin Paths" is a celebration of the songlines of one place that could be many places and a celebration of the humour and determination of the human spirit.
