Abstract
 
Description
After many years, Mal Occhio is now available in paperback, with a new Afterword by Lawrence DiStasi. Said to be "a classic of Italian American literature," Mal Occhio starts with DiStasi's memories of how the folk belief worked in his own family and launches an inquiry that probes the folk belief of evil eye in cultures from India to South America and almost everywhere in between. From ancient times to the present, we learn about the belief that a glance can cause illness or physical harm to those it strikes. A book to not only learn from, but to enjoy. - from Amzon
