Read full description of the books:
Even after seven years in Wilmington, Delaware, Maddalena Grasso is still filled with longing. She misses her mother and the familiar landscape of Italy. As she sews diligently at the factory to meet her daily quota, she dreams of finally finding herself with child, after trying for so long. And she yearns for the company of her husband Antonio, whose pursuit of the American Dream is leading nowhere, and whose nighttime adventures threaten to destroy the fragile new life they've built.

Read information about the authorChristopher Castellani was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware. His parents immigrated to the United States from a small village in Italy in the years following World War II, and their experiences have been a significant inspiration. A Kiss From Maddalena, Christopher's first novel, was published by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill in April 2003, and was subsequently published in Australia, the U.K., The Netherlands, Germany and Thailand. In 2004, Christopher was awarded the Massachusetts Book Award for Fiction for A Kiss from Maddalena. In 2005, Castellani published The Saint of Lost Things, which continues the story of A Kiss from Maddalena but is a stand-alone novel. The same is true for his most recent novel, All This Talk of Love (Algonquin, February 2013), which completes the trilogy, and which has received much early critical acclaim.
The author was educated at Swarthmore College, received his Masters in English Literature from Tufts University and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Boston University. He works as Artistic Director of Grub Street, one of the nation's leading independent writing centers, and also teaches fiction in the MFA Program at Warren Wilson, at Swarthmore College, and at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.
Christopher Castellani lives in Boston, MA, where he is at work on his fourth novel.
