ON THE EDGE OF EMIGRATION.
The Journey of the Italian knife-sharpeners.
I am very pleased to announce that we are now taking orders for Uk and United States for the English translation of Patrick Grassi's book "On the edge of emigration: The Journey of the Italian knife-sharpeners" (originally published in Italian as "Sul Filo dell'Emigrazione").
The English translation is the full original book, including photographs, comprising 263 pages. This excellent translation, by American ex-patriot Frederick Von Gal, captures Patrick's work in standard daily English, conveying both the language and sensibility of the original. As is the case with the original, the translation is lush with interviews with some of the grinders and their families who worked in either the United States or Great Britain, photographs and documentation.
In the words of the translator: " What a surprise I had and kept having all through the book. Both Patrick Grassi's ability to depict the story and the real-life contents of this intricate modern saga turned out to be something unique, full of higher meaning, and sentimental importance."
