Pasquale's Nose. Idle Days in an Italian Town.

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 2001. Item #1035

Small 8vo.  200 x 130 mm., [7 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches].  [x], 209 pp.  Publisher's yellow boards, title on spine; dust jacket.

First edition.  An account of a travel to Sutri, an ancient Etruscan village, by an attorney escaping the high pressure of a white-shoe law firm in Manhattan.  Rips, a native of Nebraska, records his impressions of small town life in Italy and demonstrates his affinity to the eccentricities he encounters.  "Wonderfully fanciful, philosophical, and moving Pasquale’s Nose is a journey, a memoir, and a story about finding home in the weirdest place imaginable."
