The ghost of the past reader closes the circle this Christmas under the banner of Dickens.
A Christmas Carol is in fact one of the characters of Desy Icardi‘s Christmas e-book.
For this reading I have to thank Luciana who pointed out the link to Fazi Editore.
Desy Icardi as well as a writer is a stand-up comedian and blogger: together with Grace Dis, Sara Ronco and Federica Salassa she created Pataridens a blog dedicated to funny stories on female issues.
I immediately fell in love with the lawyer Ferro who I discover is also the protagonist of Desy’s other novels.
The idea was precisely to take the characters created by Desy and make them move within a Christmas story.
Good idea! Don’t you agree?
I love this painting of the passionate reader on his step ladder. I believe it was painted by the German artist Carl Spitzweg.
This is absolutely interesting!
I did not know him.
I am doing some research and found that the painting is called “Der Bücherwurm” “The Bookworm” and that it is in the Museum Georg Schäfer, Schweinfurt.
Is this correct?
“Der Bücherwurm”! I had forgotten the title of this lovely painting; I am glad you mention it.
Carl Spitzweg – I like his slightly ironic paintings. He was a painter of the “Biedermeier” epoch in Germany.
I am also a “Bücherwurm”, worming my way through books.
