Cory Oldweiler's debut novel is part coming-of-age quest, part love letter to the arts, but there is nothing quotidian in his telling of the tale. "Testimony of the Senses" is the story of Emilio Tramonti, a boy who grows up believing his father died before he was born. On his seventeenth birthday, Emilio learns that his life has been predicated on a lie, his father is alive. He leaves home, seeking to understand, and eventually to confront, the man who ran rather than raise his child. Navigating thoughts on family and faith; love and loss; literature, language and music; Emilio is conducted through it all by his omnipresent companion, Gustav Mahler's Seventh Symphony, which he believes provides the aural architecture of his life. In the propulsive final movement, Emilio finally faces judgment for the choices he has made.

Book Description Cy Daedalus Books. Paperback. Condition: New. 262 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.3in. x 0.4in.Testimony of the Senses is the story of Emilio Tramonti, a boy who grows up believing his father died before he was born. On his seventeenth birthday, Emilio learns that his life has been predicated on a lie-his father is actually alive. He leaves home, seeking to understand, and eventually to confront, the man who ran rather than raise his child. There is nothing quotidian in the telling of this tale. Emilio is conducted toward his fate by an omnipresent companion, Gustav Mahlers Seventh Symphony, which premiered on the date of his birth and provides the aural architecture of his life. His mothers idolatrous obsession with Michelangelos Piet transforms her from a coddler to just another absent authority figure. A false, former New York Philharmonic violinist teaches Emilio to hear, but ultimately betrays and loses his trust. An annotated, photo-filled copy of Ovids Metamorphoses, dating from his fathers time as a photographer during World War II, holds the mysteries of his parents past-and a carefully preserved dead lizard. And in his final movement, increasingly insensate from wandering Lear-like through the storm surrounding and suffusing him, Emilio is forced to face judgment for the choices he has made. Testimony of the Senses is both bildungsroman and billet-doux, to literature, language, and music. It challenges the reader to think, to question, to seek out answers. How do we grieve Why do we hope What are we willing to believe in blindly, on faith alone Ultimately it is Emilios voice that matters most in all these matters, Emilios voice that carries the story along. Rhythmically, melodically, almost compulsively. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780692408438
