by Albert Russo.
This novel by the award-winning author Albert Russo (his work has been translated into a dozen languages) is set in Israel, Africa and Europe, and appeared, excerpted, in the following American magazines: The Midatlantic Review (NY) and Short Story International (NY). It was an award finalist in The National Best Books Awards, sponsored by USA Book News. Alexis, who grew up in Rwanda-Urundi, is the son of an Italian Jew and a beautiful mulatto woman. As a young adult, he now ponders over the complexity of his roots: African-European and Judeo-Christian (his mother was raised a Catholic). With his American wife he will vacation in Israel, and that stay will be a turning point in his life.
