Item description for Awkward: A Detour by Mary Cappello...

"Her writing shines."-The New York Times Book Review

Without awkwardness we would not know grace, stability, or balance. Yet no one before Mary Cappello has turned such a penetrating gaze on this misunderstood condition. Fearlessly exploring the ambiguous borders of identity, she mines her own life journeys-from Russia, to Italy, to the far corners of her heart and the depths of a literary or cinematic text-to decipher the powerful messages that awkwardness can transmit.

Mary Cappello is the author of Night Bloom (1999) and is a professor of English at the University of Rhode Island. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

Reviews - What do customers think about Awkward: A Detour?

Brilliant and Awkward  Jul 27, 2007
Awkward, A Detour by Mary Cappello is a brilliant, far-ranging meditation on the many aspects of awkwardness. Cappello takes the reader on journeys through Rome, Sicily, London, Moscow, and places in Canada and the United States as she explores the permutations of awkward. She delves deeply into her own past and present and that of her family and the impact of immigration on awkwardness. Cappello carefully explores the awkwardness found in the lives and literary works of Emily Dickinson and Henry James. Mary Cappello's book is poignant,moving, humorous, and heart and eye-opening.
