Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0929701704, Paperback)

Translated from the Italian by Estelle Gilson.

Foreword Magazine "Book of the Year" Gold Medalion.

Two novels by one of the masters of 20th century Italian fiction, published in English for the first time.

Richly imbued with imagination, charming in their humorous irony, and eminently readable, both The Boy with Two Mothers and The Life and Death of Adria and Her Children are alive with a subtle "magic," presenting unforgettable characters across a canvas of European socio-political upheaval. These are classic stories which will haunt the mind long after their reading. In each, Bontempelli fulfills what he believed was the writer's ultimate goal: "to tell a dream as if it were reality and reality as if it were a dream." Before the advent of the fantastic fiction we associate with Latin American writers, it was Massimo Bontempelli who, in 1926, defined a new literary style he called realismo magico. For decades afterward the term was everywhere almost synonymous with his name. At his death in 1960, the New York Times described Bontempelli as the "leader of the futuristic school in the 1920s...whose goal it was to create a world of fantasy which would have the objectivity of the natural world."
