A Woman, Aleramo, Sibilla
6 Aleramo, Sibilla A Woman
U.S.A. University of California Press 1983 0520049497 / 9780520049499 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
219 pages. For a book that sent shock waves through the European literary establishment and, since its original publication in 1906 has gone through seven editions along with highly cclaimed translations into all th principal languages of Europe, "A Woman" (Una Donna) by Sibilla Aleramo (1876-1960) has remained curiously obscure in America. Aleramo's lightly fictionalized memoir presented a kaleidoscopic series of Italian images--the frenetic industrialism of the North, the miserable squalor of the country's backward areas to the South, fin de siè cle Italian politics and literary life--all set in the framework of a drama admiringly characterized by Luigi Pirandellow as "grim and powerful." For some other Italians, "A woman" touched ar aw nerve, and many critics reacted to Aleramo with extreme hostility. However, whether one liked Aleramo's novel or not, the book was an iceberg in the mainstream of Italian literary life, impossible to get around without careful inspection. Sibilla Aleramo is the pseudonym of Rina Faccio, Italian author. She was a feminist best known for her autobiographical depictions of life as a woman in late 19th century Italy.

I'm Not Scared, Ammaniti, Niccolo
7 Ammaniti, Niccolo I'm Not Scared
Australia Text Publishing 2004 187700846X / 9781877008467 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
215 pages. Translated from the Italian as: "Io non ho paura" which was first published by Giulio Einaudi Editore 2001. Winner of the prestigious 2001 Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Fiction. 1978, the hottest summer of the twentieth century. In a tiny Italian rural community, the adults shelter indoors while six children venture out on their bikes across the scorched, deserted countryside. In the midst of a sea of golden wheat, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano discovers a secret so momentous, so terrible, that he dare not tell anyone about it. To come to terms with what he finds, he will have to draw strength from his own imagination and sense of humanity. The reader witnesses a dual story: the one that is seen through Michele's eyes, and the tragedy involving the adults of this isolated hamlet. The result is an immensely powerful, lyrical and skilfully narrated novel, reminiscent of such classics as Stand By Me, To Kill a Mockingbird andThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer. A compelling and utterly absorbing read, I'm Not Scared reinforces Ammaniti's status as a major literary talent. Winner of the Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Literature. Niccolo Ammaniti has written two collections of short stories and six novels, four of which have been translated into English. He was the youngest ever winner of the Italian Viareggio Literary Prize for Fiction for his best-selling novel I'm Not Scared,which has been translated into thirty-five languages. The Crossroads received the Premio Strega Prize in 2007, Italy's equivalent to the Booker Prize. Review: This gripping American debut by Italian novelist Ammaniti captures well the vagaries of childhood: the shifting alliances, the casual betrayals and the mix of helplessness and earnest audacity with which children confront adult situations. Nine-year-old Michele Amitrano lives with his little sister, devoted mother and distant father in a rural Italian hamlet consisting of five dilapidated houses. In the sweltering summer of 1978, he and a group of his friends strike out on their bikes across the barren, scorched hills. While exploring an abandoned house, Michele discovers what he believes to be the dead body of a boy his own age. He cannot bring himself to tell his friends. When he tries to tell his father, the elder Amitrano brushes him off. Drawn back to the site, Michele discovers that the boy is not dead, but weak, disoriented and unable to account for his presence there. Michele brings the boy food and water and slowly learns more about him. The boy's story-which includes kidnapping and ransom-are too much for a nine-year-old to fathom and involve virtually every adult in the tiny community. Yet Michele decides that he must do something to help the boy. Part mystery, part morality play, the novel is written in simple, spare prose. The characters, particularly that of Michele, spring to life, and the story builds to a heart-stopping climax. Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget. (Feb.) Forecast: This novel was a bestseller in Italy, and while that doesn't usually translate into U.S. sales, Ammaniti's masterful use of suspense should help win him an American following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. 'Niccolo Ammaniti is the best novelist of his generation.' Il Giornale 'Ammaniti, one of the most admired figures on the Italian fiction scene...uses short sentences like the cracks of a whip and sharp paragraphs to make our hearts race and carry us to the edge of the abyss.' ABC, Spain 'Ammaniti is a born story-teller.' L'Unita 'Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget.' Publishers Weekly 'A tense, breathless book, written with self-confidence and vitality.' La Stampa 'Readable in one breath...moving, impressive, amazing. It reminds you of Italo Calvino, but a Calvino warmed by a humanity that is not afraid to roll around in the mud.' Panorama 'Confirms his extraordinary narrative talent, over which he superimposes an atmosphere of horror and marvel.' (Le Monde.)

Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

And I felt indescribably wonderful, the way I was moving, it was very joyous. And some judgemental part came in and said this is not very interesting dancing, it's a bit banal. And it ?oated past because I didn't care, I just kept on dancing because it didn't matter what that judgement was".

The Days & Dreams of Arcady, Bingham, Geoffrey C.
15 Bingham, Geoffrey C. The Days & Dreams of Arcady
Australia New Creation Pub 1985 0864080174 / 9780864080172 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xii + 246 pages. The Days & Dreams or Arcady - or Arcadia - was a rustic sylvan retreat from the inanities and cruelties of the world of foolish and vindictive humans. At least so the idea goes. The original Arcady was supposed to have been an actual place where innocence, pleasures and delights as well as good honest work was done, in the absence of a blasé and sophisticated spirit. It was a world of peace and joy, games and dancing. No Arcady exists - as such - but Geoffrey Bingham does write of an Austral Arcady. We are not sure whether it is tongue-in-cheek or cheek-in-tongue, or both! Anyway he writes, and The Days and Dreams of Arcady is an amusing and entertaining collection of short stories. Only the unthinking will miss their point - a message to modern man that he has perhaps missed the richest and most fulfilling of lives in his busy technological world. In any case, it may be just good fun to read Bingham. Entertainment is what good literature is about, and to read a master of pen and humour is no great burden for any reader to bear. PRO HART. As rich in whimsy - if not richer - is Pro hart, famed for his bush and rural paintings. He has taken one story from the many about Arcady, ‘Tally-Ho the Red Fox’, and faithfully interpreted it. Pro Hart has his own Aussie Arcady - wider than Wirril Creek, but much in the same idiom.
