        Federinco Fellini, The Films and Other Reading Gems

The Book Review

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 BOOK.

“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.
