Dante's Arm is poignant and sensual novel, certain to evoke the reader's senses. Set against the varied backdrops of 1970s Italy, Kenya, and Australia, the story wends its way through palazzos and villas, savannahs and bush country, taking in the colors, sights and smells of unfamiliar and provocative landscapes. Dante’s Arm is history, autobiography, diary, even confession, carrying the reader on a young man's journey through an erotic world of decadence and greed.
Livio Maggi finds himself being drawn to a sophisticated older woman. Anxious to gain the acceptance of her elite friends, he struggles to establish himself in their world. His desperation leads him into dangerous territory, as he becomes a pawn in an international diamond smuggling operation - an accomplice to the criminal activities that sustain the wealth and power of a privileged few. Along the way, he explores the voluptuous possibilities of his brave new world, awakening and indulging appetites he never even knew existed – from the simple pleasures of marriage to the exotic, rarified delights of the aristocracy, he is irresistibly compelled to fulfill his hidden desires.
