You Can't Get Blood Out of a Turnip by Ilia Terzulli Warner

You Can't Get Blood Out of a Turnip by Ilia Terzulli Warner

Only 2 left


Quick Overview

A humourous look at Italian proverbs written by the talented Ilia Warner and Christopher Arnander. Each proverb is given a literal translation and an English equivalent. These are sometimes identical, perhaps because of their common Biblical or Latin origin. Sometimes they are bizarrely askance, as our title suggests.


Whether fashionable or unfashionable, which of us don't use proverbs all the time? They are an indispensable vehicle of popular wisdom and a lively contributor to educated speech. Proverbs are forever evolving. This gathering of Italian proverbs is intended to bring a smile of recognition to it's readers.
