Praise for The Breaking of a Wave

“But beneath the boundless flow of colorful anecdote, character portrait, and discursive dialogue in and around the Tuscan town of Forte dei Marmi, there’s a story about the lonely daydreams of outsiders…this immense, good-natured, self-indulgent tale offers a cumulative celebration of life in shaggy dog form.”

“Open the book to any page…and find there traces of impeccable humor and of daring magic, of innocence and of sensuality, as if the entire book had been animated by a single, unique breath of life.”
—Aldo Grasso, Corriere della Sera

“A timeless tale of the power of imagination and of the strength possessed solely by those still capable of astonishment, of the extraordinary experience of being unconventional, even when suffering may sometimes be the consequence.”
—Elena Masuelli, TuttoLibri-La Stampa
