A bestseller in Italy, Prince of the Clouds is a compelling tale that blends romance and military strategy, often to delightful, sometimes comic effect. Military scholar Carlo Terzo is exiled to Palermo, Sicily, in the wake of World War II. While caring for his ailing wife, he begins to tutor Salvatore Dragonara, a young Communist and poet, and Fiore, an aristocrat and daughter of the overprotective landowner, Duchess Mastema. When the unlikely pair fall for each other, they test Terzo's theory that the principles of war can be applied to the battles of love.AUTHORBIO: Gianni Riotta is a novelist and journalist, and is the co-editor of La Stampa, one of Italy's leading newspapers. He lives in Turin and New York.
