Título: Small in the Eye of a River
Condición del libro: New
These unique essays and stories celebrate a life in which fly fishing is the central ingredient: from the magical qualities of a blue-dun neck to the intermingling of love, music, fly fishing, and the haunting life of rivers.All nine tales and reflections are characterized by a restless, searching quality, but each registers a unique point of view. In some cases Mele speculates about the elusive properties of the blue-dun necks, as he searches for some ultimate shade and texture, some way to define their delicacy; at other times he seeks the perfect bamboo fly rod, one that will meet all of his exacting dry-fly demands. At times the world of fly fishing leads him to explore the life of dose friends like Dan Brenan, or old masters such as Theodore Gordon; and at other times that same world becomes inextricable from the need to protect rivers, or from his love and practice of music.About the Author:
Frank Mele was a violinist with the Rochester Philharmonic and, later, violist with the Pittsburgh Symphony and Modern Art String Quartet. His novel about Italian Americans, Polpetto, was highly praised in The New York Times and elsewhere; he was the author of a number of brilliant short stories, one of which has been widely anthologized. Mele lived most of his adult life in Woodstock, New York, close to his beloved Catskill rivers. He died in 1996.
