In Calabria

In Calabria by Peter S. Beagle

Beagle returns to the subject of unicorns for a very different take.

For one thing, this one happens in modern Italy. An aging, cranky farmer on a hillside, who only speaks with the post man on a regular basis, raising vegetables and keeping his animals and (secretly) writing poetry -- a life drawn in loving detail -- when one morning he walks out and the unicorn is there.

This leads onward, involving helicopters, the postman's sister who has learned to drive and take his route, the fortune-teller in the village, the time when he was married, the place where the unicorn stays the most, and more.
