Between Rothko and 3 Windows

Luigi Sasta, editor-in-chief of the moribund Italian language daily, Stampa Italica, is caught in a kind of no man’s land that is the city of Toronto. Nearing retirement age and suffering from periodic angina attacks, widowed for eleven years, estranged from his beloved daughter, unable to forge lasting friendships in the New World, Luigi meanders on the streets of Toronto, at once seduced and repelled by the steel and glass temples of commerce, longing for a return to some Arcadian homeland that seems to exist only in his fevered imagination. Between Rothko and 3 Windows is an existential meditation on multiculturalism¬†in the¬†key of a literary thriller.
