Lou C. "Lucy" Lynch has spent his entire life in Thomaston, NY, and he loves it! He loves his wife, he loves his family, and he loves his corner grocery "empire" in town.
At the age of 60, he's facing a trip to Italy, and he is dreading it. Why doesn't he want to go? Why doesn't he want to be reunited with Bobby Marconi, his childhood friend? And what happened to Lucy to cause his "spells," which originated in childhood?
All will be revealed in this dense, rich, and absorbing offering from Russo. You'll love it!
