In 2003 Jack Zipes translated “Beautiful Angiola,” the first half of Laura Gonzenbach’s astonishing treasury of folk and fairy tales, told and retold by generations of Sicilian peasants. Now the Gonzenbach collection is complete in English: “The Robber with the” “Witch’s Head” presents almost fifty new stories about demons and clever maidens and princes. Bursting with life, "The Robber with the Witch’s Head "is a storyteller’s dream, full of adventure and magic, expertly rendered by the translator of the Brothers Grimm.
what critics have said about “Beautiful Angiola”:
“The Sicilian tales in Beautiful Angiola are a revelation; not in their originality, because like all great collected folk and fairy tales they are universal. But they have a uniqueness because the flavor of that island off the toe of the boot of Italy is so concentrated, so lusty, so full of sun, lemons and herbs that when reading them, I could taste them. I see a series of paintings inspired by them forming in my head. What a wonderful collection
for any folklorist, Italian and especially Sicilian! Strega Nona (who is Calabrese) approves!.” — Tomie dePaola
“Ostensibly collected for younger readers, the anthology is just as appropriate for an adult audience.” – "Library Journal
“An extraordinary collection.” — "Ruminator Review
“Stories with a feminist slant, strange, quirky and tart. Sometimes shocking, often superb.”
—Jacqueline Wilson, author of “Girls in Tears” and “The Lottie Project”
