You Can't Get Blood Out of a Turnip and other Italian Proverbs with English equivalents By Ilia Terzulli Warner

You Can't Get Blood Out of a Turnip and other Italian Proverbs with English equivalents
by Ilia Terzulli Warner

A humourous look at Italian proverbs written by the talented Ilia Warner and Christopher Arnander. Each proverb is given a literal translation and an English equivalent. These are sometimes identical, perhaps because of their common Biblical or Latin origin. Sometimes they are bizarrely askance, as our title suggests.
