Snow, Dog, Foot by Claudio Morandini, translated from the Italian by J Ockenden and published by Peirene Press, is a beautifully compassionate story of an old man estranged from society gradually becoming estranged from himself. Whether due to dementia, psychosis or social isolation, the author perfectly encapsulates how his attempts to safeguard his shreds of sanity pitch him deeper into the muddled maelstrom of his mind.

(Anne Goodwin, Annethology)
