Winner of an American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation "No one in the world . . . can tell a story better than Gioia Timpanelli."--Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes "Gioia Timpanelli's novellas . . . offer simple lessons about the nature of beauty and the beauty of nature . . . in rich, incantatory language." --"The New York Times Book Review" A renowned storyteller who has beguiled audiences around the world offers these mesmerizing novella-length fables about two young women and the transformative power of art. In "A Knot of Tears," a baroness locks herself up in the Green Palace, only to have her seclusion interrupted by a parrot that flies through the window. When a sailor arrives to retrieve his companion, the young man and his pet delight her with three inspiring stories, while an unscrupulous suitor schemes to lure her out of her house and into his arms. In "Rusina, Not Quite in Love," Timpanelli recasts "Beauty and the Beast" as the tale of a loving young heroine who escapes her poor family to live at the estate of Signor Sebastiano. A devastatingly ugly man who prefers plants to people, Sebastiano leads Rusina to the true meaning of beauty. Lyrical, enchanting, wise, these timeless stories are, in the words of the baroness, "simple, but not so simple," as they enlighten readers about the virtues of love, solitude, and art. "Gioia Timpanelli's stories . . . are dreams . . . and these dreams, in the skill of their telling, lead us back to ourselves." --"The Boston Globe" "This is brilliant writing . . . that] changes tales into fresh literature . . . by the passion of an educated person for the great things in life: plants, works of art, talk at dinner, and devotion." --Robert Bly Sometimes the Soul: Two Novellas of Sicily Timpanelli, Gioia, Vintage Books USA

TIMPANELLI, Gioia:
Sometimes the Soul - Two novellas of Sicily - Paperback

1998, ISBN: 9780375707223

[ED: Paperback], [PU: Vintage Books, Random House], TIMPANELLI, Gioia Sometimes the Soul Two Novellas of Sicily Vintage Books, Random House, 1998 paperback Zustand: gelesen, Widmung auf der Cover Innenseite, an den Rändern leicht bestoßen, guter Zustand Content: Two rich, witty novella-length fables feature women struggling to develop their artistic and intellectual voices against the colorfully rendered backdrop of traditional Sicilian households. The first novella, "A Knot of Tears (Un Gruppu di Chiantu)," is set in Palermo around the turn of the century and features Costanza, a baroness who has hidden herself away at a friend's house and turned into a virtual hermit. Her life begins to change when a parrot flies through her window and its owner, a charming, storytelling young sailor (a male Scheherezade) comes looking for the bird. Timpanelli's considerable skill as a professional storyteller shines as she effortlessly guides the reader through her nested-box narrative?each level illuminating the others in a delicate and tangled pattern that gives the story a quiet elegance. The second novella, "Rusina, Not Quite in Love," retells the Beauty and the Beast tale, once again in a not too distant past. Poor Rusina, a landscape painter, marries rich, ugly but sensitive Sebastian to pay off her father's debts then she finds in Sebastian both the inspiration she needs for her art and a version of love that she had not known. Despite their brevity, these tales bewitch the reader with their intelligence and warmth. Author tour., [SC: 1.20], leichte Gebrauchsspuren, privates Angebot, [GW: 400g]
