Dall'Arno al Tamigi is another book by Amerigo Iannacone of Isernia (Italy). This time Iannacone discusses a linguistic issue: mainly the interferences of Anglo-American words on the Italian language. This book gathers a number of articles Iannacone published in his monthly magazine Il Foglio Volante and also feedback given by different contributors regarding the linguistic question.
The book helps a lot in reflecting about the correctness of certain words in Italian, but it also helps the reader understand better some of the contemporary Italian ways of thinking and acting regarding the use of everyday language.
Cronache reali e surreali is the latest book published by Amerigo Iannacone. This time Iannacone invites us to read some 40 short and micro-stories which float between the real and the surreal. One reads about different contexts, persons and situations, but at the same time feels that what Iannacone presents us with are things which might also happen someday to us. The stories are all written in a very fluent language and style and the variety of themes is a guarantee against monotony.
Dr. Tholana Ashok Chakravarthy (from Hyderabad, India) read Teresinka Pereira's interview with me on the Corean magazine The Moon Light of Corea and got to know my e-mail. He contacted me and asked me to send him some of my poems in English. I also saw his blog and read some of his poetry: http://www.apoetsconcern.blogspot.com/
He also sent me a poetry anthology, Serene Thoughts...of Poetic Ripples (2006). It is an anthology of 70 beautiful poems which have to do with issues such as peace, war, famine, environment, injustice and inequality. The book has a very attractive presentation and a number of forwards written by different people (writers, journalists, poets, educationalists, and doctors).
Nadia-Cella POP was in Malta in 2006 and she still has fascinating memories of my island. Ironically, I visited her country, Romania, last May/June. We didn't meet in either country, but we still managed to come in contact with each other thanks to poetry.
