About this title


"The Silent Gondoliers" is a fable by S. Morgenstern - a nom de plume of William Goldman, author of "The Princess Bride." It is the charming story of Luigi, the gondolier with the goony smile. Once upon a time, everyone knew well that the gondoliers of Venice had the finest voices in all the world. But now, alas, few among the living remember those days and fewer still were blessed to hear their songs. No one was able to discover the secret of the sudden silence of the golden-voiced gondoliers - no one, it seems, but S. Morgenstern. Now for the first time Morgenstern recounts the sad and noble story of the ambitions, frustrations and eventual triumph of Luigi; he will enchant you, delight you, and make you smile!
