Publisher Comments:

Inspired by real events, the novel Notorious Casolini tells of the life and adventures of PeppinoCasolini. Peppino lived in the city of Barrafranca, Sicily, in the early 1900s. A gentle person of high moral values, dedicated to his family, he wanted nothing more than the simple life of a farmer, with those he loved nearby. But fate had other plans for Peppino. When Peppino's beautiful younger sister spurned the advances of the son of the ruling mayor, it ignited a fire that would consume the entire family. The oppressive ruling class of Barrafranca turned the full force of their power on Peppino and his family with deadly results. However, from their seats of privilege and authority, they never imagined that a gentle farmer might rise up against them with a furious vengeance. Building on the known historic facts of PeppinoCasolini, author Angelo Crapanzano weaves an exciting story filled with unforgettable characters, passionate romance and an unexpected conclusion that will knock readers off their feet! Angelo Crapanzano is a full-time writer who retired as Manager of the Electronics Research and Development Department of an aerospace corporation. Notorious Casolini is his third novel. His fourth novel is in editing. He is currently working on a fifth, Fiction or Prophecy, which explores the future of a nuclear-infested world. He lives with his wife of 57 years near Akron, Ohio.
