Rainbows in the Fountain
the story of the author’s childhood in Italy during the 1940s and 50s. It begins
with the German occupation of his village in W.W.II.
His grandmother scuffles with the soldiers
who have seized her home, while her son—the author’s father—a fugitive from the
Italian army, hides in the attic in fear of discovery.
A Hairdresser's Revenge
novel, set in 1963, recounts the story of Blair Fusco, an aspiring
eighteen-year-old who wishes to become a successful hairstylist, and prove wrong
those who regard him as queer, particularly his father.
Perceived to be homosexual, and ridiculed
for his effeminate characteristics, Blair struggles to find his personal and
professional identity. A first foiled romance with a lesbian and several
equivocal relationships with mature women, together with his initiation into a
group of local mobsters, transform Fusco into a shrewd operator.
