Awkward: A Detour

by

Awkward: A Detour Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Without awkwardness we would not know grace, stability, or balance. Yet no one before Mary Cappello has turned such a penetrating gaze on this misunderstood condition. Fearlessly exploring the ambiguous borders of identity, she mines her own life journeys-from Russia, to Italy, to the far corners of her heart and the depths of a literary or cinematic text-to decipher the powerful messages that awkwardness can transmit.

Review:

"Her writing shines." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A rare and insightful series of meditations that takes readers to Russia, Italy and Australia, through the literary and cultural landscape, and into the uncomfortable corners of the human condition." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Startlingly imaginative nonfiction about a very particular if common and much-maligned state of being.

About the Author

Mary Cappello is a poet, essayist, and critic, and the author of Night Bloom: An Italian-American Life. Professor of English at the University of Rhode Island, she lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
