The Kruguer massacre

Luciano Lamberti

NOVEL. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2019. 208 PAGES

In the small mountain town of Kruguer, a snow festival is held every 26 June: under the eager gaze of tourists, the community comes together in the town square to perform traditional dances, eat roast lamb, give out free samples of chocolate and consume massive quantities of German beer. Shops fill up and the income helps to get the community through to summer. During the 1987 festival, however, something happened, something that neighbouring towns had been fearing for some time: almost the entire population of the town was murdered.

In a format mixing documentary interviews with fictional recreations, Lamberti tells the story of a gradually approaching nightmare that eventually explodes into an orgy of horror and madness.

«Luciano Lamberti is a surprising author... each of his books is, I think, an event.»
