Aldo Palazzeschi (1885-1974) is arguably the main twentieth-century Italian author who has been so much missed via the English-speaking international. Born in Florence and informed as an actor, Palazzeschi ranks excessive as a poet and fiction author in his fatherland. His paintings, which makes an attempt to recreate the event of a spectator gazing and hearing a personality on degree, received him the compliment of F.T. Marinetti, the founding father of Italian futurism, who enrolled the younger poet in his avant-garde coterie although, stylistically, Palazzeschi's paintings had little in universal with futurism.

A match of Misfits brings jointly a variety of Palazzeschi's brief fiction for the 1st time in English. via transparent and fluid translations, Nicolas J. Perella demonstrates Palazzeschi's use of laughter to debunk social and literary myths.
