In 1950, Prince Rainier became ruler of Monaco while shortly afterwards tanker baron Aristotle Onassis sailed in as the city-state’s largest investor. The two men had different visions for Monaco’s future: should it be a haven for the ultra-rich or a tax haven for a rising class of international millionaires? Ultimately, Prince Rainier prevailed; Onassis sailed away to marry Jackie Kennedy.

This is a poetry collection of great beauty. Denisa Stanislav puts into words the doubtful silences and unspoken yearnings in our lives. A magnificent creation!

The Tenor is a sweeping tale of historical fiction in the style of Ann Patchett’s “Bel Canto” and De Burniere’s “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.” It is based loosely on the stories and anecdotes that the author learned from several of Maria Callas’ personal friends and from nearly a dozen trips to Italy and Greece to research the subject.
Another book on Maria Callas? Yes, but this one delivers an inside view of the Diva’s apartment in Paris and covers the last several months of her life. How is this done if she was a recluse and avoided the public?
