A Land in the Storytelling Sea: A North American in Malta
Free local delivery
Sensual, painterly, even prayerful, these 50 poems and 50 full color original pictures by Sheryl Loeffler deepen into a land of legend and myth, an island populated, past and present, by saints, beggars and pirates, all of whom are blessed by “vivid geometries” of light. Sheryl Loeffler portrays Malta as a country awash in splendor and contradiction, “this land where Christians call God Alla.” A Land in the Storytelling Sea is quietly pleasurable in its narrative journey and in its subtle and seductive craft.
