About this product
- DescriptionFor this trilogy of short vels--her first new book in six years--Ursule Molinaro drew upon a wealth of sources (including Balzac, Flaubert, and Hildegard of Bingen) to transform the grotesqueries of our time into timeless tales. <p> Angel on Fire presents Clara Corvo, who was born with three peculiarities--a cloven hoof, phemenal intelligence, and clairvoyance. Her mother finds her unbearable, and to escape her family takes a young student as a lover. When six-year-old Clara matriculates at Harvard Law School, an almost classical conclusion is inevitable. <p> In twenty letters gathered for the pending canization of Jacob Erskine Wooster, a picture emerges t of humility but of large contraditions in an ordinary man whose beatification is as strange as his life. Saint Boy is Diane Arbus in prose. <p> In April in Paris, Molinaro spins Southern gothic into French embroidery. An American woman out of her element wherever she happens to be.
