THE WORLD CHANGES US
This is Giacomino Nicolazzo's second collection of short stories. But it is more than just a book filled with stories. It is more like a book of guided meditations, designed and written with the intent to require anyone who picks it up to interact with the author on a deeply personal level. These stories will require something of you as the reader, something more than just your attention. They will require you to use your imagination.
All these stories have a curious edge...even a dangerous power. Though they flow from the deepest recesses of the author's heart and soul, they are also manifestations of greater truths...your truths. Truth is all at once the most wonderful, yet most terrifying and mystifying force in the world. At times is even too impossible to believe.
These stories are powerful. Most are short. Some a bit longer than others. Some are abnormally short, as brief as a few paragraphs. Others are poems or pieces of prose. A few could be considered parables. Some, mere and random bit of wisdom. But be assured, there is order to it all. There is a method to the author's madness. In each, you will discover the myriad ways the world changes us, despite our best attempts to change it
"What you are about to read could very well be circumstances or events taken from your own life...your own experiences. When you read them, allow them to inhabit your thoughts. Let them stir your memories. Flesh them out. make them your own."
This is our first book in the Regional Recipes Of Terra d'Amore series.
Diana and I have traveled extensively throughout all the regions of this beautiful country to discover, taste and come back home to Terra d'Amore with the most unique, delicious and easily-prepared italian recipes from each of the twenty regions.
Our journey has taken us several years but it has truly been a labor of love. Together, we had the opportunity to see the most beautiful country in the world, explore its ancient cities and meet some very talented and interesting people. The cuisines of these incredible regions are centuries old, but the recipes have remained timeless and unchanged.
We chose to begin the series in the city in which we live...Bologna, in the region of emilia Romagna. Please join us.
"Emilia-Romagna may not have ruins as grand as Roma, or picturesque canals as beautiful as Venezia or even the great artistic treasures of firenze. what it does have however is food...wonderful, incredible, delicious, glorious, tantalizing food. for many of us, it is the best in all of italy."
