Federinco Fellini, The Films and Other Reading Gems
You can always count on Rizzoli to get it right -
-this time it is a gorgeous and over-sized picture book by Tullio Kezich
over 317 pages that bring the time and places of “Federinco Fellini, The
Films” to life.
We are there through the great films, with the great
stars, in the great moments as Tullio Kezich, former film critic for
Italy’s leading newspaper, acts as our guide.
If you love Italian cinema, or if you just love movies
and coffee table books that sing - - this is the one for you.
“Hidden Napa Valley” with spectacular photographs by
Wes Walker (Welcome Books, $19.95, 172 pages) is another one of those
books that must have and keep on your coffee table. The focus is a wine
lover’s paradise but the focus is also on one of the most beautiful
parts of the United States in all its glory. More than 100 color photos
showcase the history and the present of this special area. A SPECIAL
“Blooms of Darkness” by Aharon Appelfeld (Schocken,
$25.95, 275 pages) is a novel by the acclaimed Israeli writer who ranks
at the very top as a chronicler of the Holocaust. This moving work is
about pain and loss and ultimately redemption. MOST NOTABLE.
