Synopsis: For this trilogy of short novels--her first new book in six years--Ursule Molinaro drew upon a wealth of sources (including Balzac, Flaubert, and Hildegard of Bingen) to transform the grotesqueries of our time into timeless tales.
Angel on Fire presents Clara Corvo, who was born with three peculiarities--a cloven hoof, phenomenal intelligence, and clairvoyance. Her mother finds her unbearable, and to escape her family takes a young student as a lover. When six-year-old Clara matriculates at Harvard Law School, an almost classical conclusion is inevitable.
In twenty letters gathered for the pending canonization of Jacob Erskine Wooster, a picture emerges not of humility but of large contraditions in an ordinary man whose beatification is as strange as his life. Saint Boy is Diane Arbus in prose.
In April in Paris, Molinaro spins Southern gothic into French embroidery. An American woman out of her element wherever she happens to be.
About the Author: Ursule Molinaro authored more than a dozen novels, two dozen widely produced one-act plays, three volumes of non-fiction, and over one hundred short stories. Her novels and stories have been published also in England, France, and Japan. She was a self-trained artist (her paintings and collages appear on her McPherson titles), and avid acrosticist. Ursule Molinaro died in New York City on July 12, 2000. Ursule Molinaro's correspondence includes letters from Marguerite Yourcenar, W. H. Auden, Raja Rao, Henri M. Peyre, Leon Kelly, Gunter Grass, Altert Camus, John Dos Passos, Marianne Moore, Anais Nin, Robert Cordier, and Edith Piaf. Recipient of awards and fellowships from the McDowell Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the PEN American Center, Ms. Molinaro also translated from four languages, including notable works by Hermann Hesse, Dino Buzzati, Nathalie Sarraute, Phillipe Sollers, Uwe Johnson, Reinhard Lettau, Audiberti, Gunter Eich, Edith Bruck, Claude Ollier, Bertolt Brecht, Francois Mauriac, Jean Vautier, Jean-Paul Weber, Walter Hollerer, Vincenzo Accame, Paolo Carra, Edward Albee (into French), and films by Jean Luc-Godard and Agnes Varda.
