9780810160606: Abecedary

In James Marcus's fluid translation, Abecedary's brief and moving vignettes combine a loving attention to the mundane and the everyday--meals and clothing, furniture and phone calls, flashes of landscape or weather--with an abundance of tangible detail, alluding always to that most intangible and fleeting of subjects: human feeling.

Review:

In each of these 22 miniatures, the Italian author focuses on a particular emotion and illustrates it with a short (very short) story. Parise is a master of the luminous detail, whether he's zooming in on a meal, a kiss, or a thunderstorm. Yet the cumulative effect of these details is surprisingly powerful, and an object lesson to Parise's minimalist cousins in this country.

About the Author:

James Marcus, a translator, critic, and writer, lives in Seattle.
