William Goldman, the acclaimed screenwriter (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Marathon Man, and Misery) and author of The Princess Bride regales us with another tale from the loquacious S. Morgenstern. This magical fable tells the story of Luigi, the talented but tone deaf gondolier with the goofy smile and the warm heart. The story is filled with humor, Morgenstern's funny rambling digressions and, of course, the moral of the fable. A re-issue of a story Goldman wrote in 1983, it's a short work -- only 110 pages -- and it's over all too soon.
