It's 1949 in South Philly, post-World War II, and we meet the Palazzini family, where two brothers have split their family into two factions. Orphaned Nicky lives with and works for his Uncle Dom, but when he's drawn into the local Shakespeare theater company, his eyes are opened to a world beyond that of his family and their family-run cab company. Using motifs and themes from the Bard, Kiss Carlo is an epic novel about family, secrets, and pursuing your dreams.
