reflective life of Italy - intimately lived and observed by a modern American
woman. A wise and delightful work, admirable in its synthesis of
understanding, independence, and rare humility.
- SHIRLEY HAZZARD "
" Fourteen years ago, the American writer Wallis Wilde-Menozzi moved with her husband and daughter to Parma, a prosperous city in northern Italy.
" Mother Tongue explores Parma, largely through the lives of its women, some historical figures - Giuseppe Verdi, Correggio, the Renaissance badessa Giovanna Piacenza - and other extraordinary individuals. "
" It is also a remarkable, probing evocation of an American life that has been tried and tempered by two very different societies.
