Malidittu la linga/Damned Language/With 2 Audio Cassettes

by Vincenzo Ancona, edited by Anna L. Chairetakis and Joseph Sciorra, translated by Gaetano Cipolla

Vicenzo Ancona is a poet who has been endowed by nature with certain gifts that facilitate his task in this world: a quick wit, an extraordinarily developed memory (Ancona can recite for hours without ever referring to a written text), and an acute sensitivity to the world around him. This 212-page bilingual volume in Sicilian and English includes two tapes of 60 minutes each of Mr. Ancona reciting his poetry in Sicilian. Paperback.
