Church of Solitude by Grazia Deledda

Church of Solitude by Grazia Deledda. 2002 State University New York Press, first printing, 176 pages.  Deledda was from Sardinia and wrote about small simple life on the island. According to the Paris Review, "While she was not associated with the Italian feminist movement, the actions of her female characters suggest she considered marginalization to be heartbreaking, but not without certain liberties." Deledda won the Nobel Prize in 1926, the first Italian woman to do so. Church of Solitude was Deledda's last novel.

Condition: Good. A few pages of underlining.

"It was quite enough for her to resolve to never return to the hospital again."
