Publisher Comments:

Emmy Award-winner James Gandolfini (All The King's Men, TV's "The Sopranos"), Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon (Shall We Dance, Stepmom), Oscar-nominated Kate Winslet (Titanic, Finding Neverland), Steve Buscemi (Fargo, Reservoir Dogs), Mandy Moore (Chasing Liberty, The Princess Diaries), Emmy Award-winner Bobby Cannavale (Snakes on a Plane, The Bone Collector), Golden Globe Award-winner Mary-Louise Parker (Red Dragon, Fried Green Tomatoes), Aida Turturro (Deep Blue Sea, Sleepers), Emmy Award-winner Eddie Izzard (My Super-Ex Girlfriend, Ocean's Twelve) and Oscar-winner Christopher Walken (Click, The Wedding Crashers) lead an all-star cast in this down-and-dirty modern day musical set which tells the story of one man's journey into infidelity and redemption. Nick (Gandolfini) is an ironworker who builds and repairs bridges. He's married to Kitty (Sarandon), a dressmaker, a strong and gentle woman with whom he has three daughters and must struggle to cope with her husband's betrayal. He is carrying on a torrid affair with a flame haired seductress named Tula (Winslet). It is only through a tragic twist of fate that Nick finally understands the extent of the pain he has inflicted on his family. With time running out he discovers the essential value of Kitty's love and respect. In an imaginative, humorous, and touching way, Romance & Cigarettes explores the cost and value of a relationship through life and death. When the characters can no longer express themselves with language, they break into song, lip-synching the tunes lodged in their subconscious. It is their way to escape the harsh reality of their world — to dream, to remember, and to connect to another human being.
