Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) August 31, 2010
For over a decade, American readers have been entranced by the special charms of Italy as related in such best-selling books as Under the Tuscan Sun and Eat Pray Love. Now Fearless Books has taken the Italian-American cultural exchange a step further with the release of Elizabeth Griffin’s A TASTE OF GRACE: Meditations and Recipes for a Fulfilling Life: http://www.fearlessbooks.com/Taste.htm.
This unusual large-format handbook not only shares the highlights of an American woman’s journey into a life of love and elegance in Trieste, Italy, but also provides readers with the tools to pursue their own inner journey into grace. Along with 16 sets of contemplative exercises, the reader is given charming glimpses into the everyday Italian lifestyle and easy-to-follow recipes from the kitchen of Mauro Cenci, the author’s husband. There’s even a pronunciation guide for such key Italian phrases as Hai fame? (pronounced EYE-FAH MAY?): “Are you hungry?” and tempo per fare niente (TEM-POE PEAR FAR-RAYE NEE-EN-TAYE): “time for doing nothing.”
A TASTE OF GRACE also represents the publishing debut of Trieste artist Alfredo Furlani, whose stunning original illustrations appear throughout this beautiful and fascinating guide into the “good life” – no matter where it is lived. Designed and produced by Fearless Books founder D. Patrick Miller, this is only the second Fearless title by an author besides the publisher himself. The first was Gary Renard’s The Disappearance of the Universe, which went on from its Fearless launch in 2003 to become a worldwide best-seller for Hay House. “I rarely take on work by other authors,” explains Miller, “and then only when I’ve discovered an innovative property that will benefit from a customized launch. A Taste of Grace was the first project in seven years to meet those criteria.”
Distributed nationwide by New Leaf, A TASTE OF GRACE is available via Amazon.com and at special multiple-copy discounts only from the publisher at http://www.fearlessbooks.com/Taste.htm. ISBN: 978-0-9822799-4-6; 190 pages, large-format paperback. For more information write the publisher at info(at)fearlessbooks(dot)com or call 510 849-4028.
