Description: For years, Gioia Timpanelli has held adult audiences rapt with her retellings of ancient tales, often appearing with Robert Bly, James Hillman, Joseph Campbell, and Gary Snyder. Here, Timpanelli draws on her deep knowledge of these old stories and their wisdoms to create hauntingly beautiful fiction about two women, solitude, art, and transformation.

In "A Knot of Tears, " a woman's locked-up life is transformed by a storytelling sailor and his parrot; her story becomes a subtle and surprising meditation on the necessity of being true to oneself and others. In "Rusina, Not Quite in Love, " a strange and lovely retelling of the story of Beauty and the Beast, a young woman escapes family and society to find consolation and beauty in nature and its muse. In each case, women of very different backgrounds -- one aristocratic, one impoverished -- find solitary spaces from which they can emerge as artists and shapers of their own destinies. With a sense of character unusual in contemporary fiction (not mere personality, but moral character), and a gentle, lyric touch, Timpanelli blends the seeming simplicity of folktale with a richly textured understanding of human nature. With great integrity and affection for language, her work teaches about love and solitude, honesty and art.
