5 CALVINO, ITALO. The Road To San Giovanni.
Vintage International, New York: 1993. 0679743480 / 9780679743484 First Vintage International Edition. s Softcover. Good condition. 
This major testament by Italo Calvino is composed of five strikingly elegant "memory exercises" about his life and work. The title piece, "The Road to San Giovani" poignantly evokes his childhood home. "A Cinema-Goer's Autobiography" tells of his adolescence, when he was riveted by American films starring Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, and others. "Memories of a Battle" is at once a reminiscence of his experience in a partisan unit during World War II and a reflection on the roles of real and imagined memories. "La Poubelle Agreee" is a Parian set piece, and "From the Opaque" is essentially his writer's credo. In The Road to San Giovani, brilliantly translated from the Italian into English by Tim Parks, the originality, grace, wit, and wisdom that we have come to associate with Calvino are everywhere on display. "Storytelling at its best." - Chicago Tribune

7 DELEDDA, GRAZIA; LAWRENCE, D. H. (FOREWORD); LANE, ERIC (INTRODUCTION & CHRONOLOGY). La Madre ( The Woman And The Priest Or The Mother.
Dedalus, London: 1987. 0946626200 / 9780946626205 Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Grazia Deledda is one of the most important women writers of the twentieth century. Her depiction of the primitive and isolated communities of northern Sardinia in a perceptive, intense and individual style gained her the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1927. "The interest in 'La Madre' lies in the presentation of sheer instinctive life. The love of the priest for the woman is sheer instinctive passion, pure and undefiled by sentiment. The instinct of direct sex is so strong and so vivid, that only the blind instinct of mother obedience, the child instinct, can overcome it." Translated into English from the Italian by M. G. Steegman

Esiste una solitudine piu dolente e profonda di quella dei due protagonisti di Prima notte, inginocchiati in lacrime a ricordare ciasuno un altro coniuge perduto? O di quella del vedovo Piovanelli che, invece, soffre non tanto per la perdita della moglie ma perche non riesce a liberarsi da una promessa di fedelta eteerna che lo condanna all'isolamento? In vita, d'altra parte, nei matrimoni alla maniera de Pirandello l'adulterio e la norma.
