    Kindle babyandbeyondshow.co.uk Ð Leading Men PDF à leading free, Leading Men KindleCastellani's first three novels captivated me thoroughly but Leading Men took all my emotions and ratcheted them up a level I can't stop thinking about this book I fell in love with Frank Merlo and Anja Bloom with Tennesee William's Italian jet setting ways with the backdrop of 1950s Italy with all of it The book is beautifully written so much so that now that I have read it to feel wrapped up in the story I intend to read it again for the craft of it I want to understand how he turns those gorgeous phrases how he uses POV to unwrap the most delicate parts of the story how he colors the world so the reader feels like they are a part of it Bravo C

From the first page I was swept into the rich and mesmerizing world of Castellani's LEADING MEN and enjoyed it right up to its incredibly moving and satisfying ending This ambitious novel has a rich cast of characters and whisks you from 1950s Italy in the 1950s to Manhattan in the 1960s to the theater world in Provincetown Massachusetts all while exploring themes of love fidelity and the challenges of forging one's own identity while in a partnership with a cre
