Overview When a breach birth leaves Paulo severely disabled, his father, the articulate, unsentimental Professor Frigerio, struggles to come to terms with his son's condition. Face to face with his own limitations, Frigerio confronts the strange way society around him handles Paolo's handicaps and observes his surprising gifts. In spare, deeply affecting episodes, the professor of language explores the nuanced boundaries between "normal" and "disabled" worlds. A remarkable memoir of fathering, winner of the 2001 Strega Prize, Italy's most prestigious literary honor, ""Born Twice""is noted Italian author Guiseppe Pontiggia's American debut. Sometimes meditative, often humorous, and always probing, Pontiggia's haunting characters linger and resound long after the book is done.
