I would like to dwell upon one significant thing and that is the fluent and smooth style of Guido Mattioni. The lines seem to be compelling the reader to softly and silently move along because the description is simply mesmerizing. I felt as if I were gently introduced to another America, a kind of absorbing panorama. Hats off to Guido Mattioni. A gem of a literary creation. Very rare to come across in this fast paced otherwise insipid world of literature which is so much deteriorated with all that crap which is published in the name of Literature.
