General Note
"Originally published in Italy in 2013 by Terre Di Mezzo Editore as Il ragazzo selvatico."
Description
"A young man escapes his painful past by retreating to the rustic comfort of the Italian Alps in this gorgeously wrought memoir from the internationally bestselling author of the "exquisite" (Annie Proulx) novel The Eight Mountains. When life in the city becomes too overwhelming for Paolo, he decides to take refuge high in the Italian mountains. Returning to the breathtaking Valle d'Aosta--known for its snowcapped mountain peaks--after a decade's absence, he rediscovers a simpler life and develops deep human connections with two neighbors. In this stunning landscape, he begins to take stock of his life and consider what he truly values. With lyrical and evocative prose, The Wild Boy is a testament to the power of the natural world, the necessity of an ever-questioning mind, and the resilience of the human spirit"--,Provided by publisher.
Language
In English, translated from the original Italian.
