"In the heat of late-1940s Naples, Filumena Marturano lies on her deathbed awaiting her marriage to Domenico Soriano, the man who has kept her as his mistress for twenty-seven years. But no sooner has the priest completed the ceremony than Filumena makes a miraculous recovery. As he reels in schock, Domenico discovers that this brilliant, iron-willed woman has a few more suprises for him. Is Filumena a simple, illiterate woman who wants to create a family for her children, or a ferine, opportunistic prostitute? And will Domenico, the selfish aged gigolo, learn to accept his responsibilities? Exploring themes of family, age and loe, Filumena exemplifies De Fiilippo's trademark moral optimism and warmth, coupled with unflinchingly astute observation of his characters which underscores the drama humour"--P.
