Pamela Schoenewaldt lived for ten years in a small town outside Naples, Italy. Her short stories have appeared in literary magazines in England, France, Italy and the United States. Her play, “Espresso con mia madre” (Espresso with my mother) was performed at Teatro Cilea in Naples.

I was fascinated by the premise and the Fresh Air interview with Toibin. For such a slight book, however, I found the going slow. The extremely long sentences and lack of sensory reality made this seem more of an essay than a narrative. Her character...more

Topics Mentioning This Author

“We kissed. It was the bright sweetness of lemons, the warmth of fresh bread and the comfort of home after a long voyage.p. 305”

“....Yes, San Francisco was far from all I longed to forget. But I was weary of the flat earth, the heat of summer and hard press of winter cold. The etchings in "Scribners" made me yearn for the loop and roll of land. I wanted to break free of the squeeze of buildings and streets running endlessly out to the horizon. p. 254”

Pamela Schoenewaldt Writers and readers, consider sharing your book/s with inmates, Prison libraries are underfunded; often inmates can only receive 4 approved books/month; many can't afford any. Sandi Burch's Books Behind Walls program handles paperwork for Georgia inmates. She contacted me through Goodreads and I'll be sending her a copy of SWIMMING IN THE MOON. If you have books to share, send them to Sandi Burch, 2142 Butler Ferry Rd, Bainbridge GA 39817. I'm sure other states have similar programs.
