Eugene Christy: The Education of Nicholas Petrovich

ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to present the latest work by Eugene Christy: The Education of Nicholas Petrovich
NEW YORK - Sept. 27, 2021 - PRLog -- Young Nicholas Petrovich is the grandson of Tony LaStoria. From the Eden created by the family patriarch must come a new offshoot, struggling to grow, to branch out, to become fully human. Torn from his roots, will young Nick find the mills of Milltown to be his fate? He gambles on his dream to return to Boston, to pursue those books that tempt him with hopes of achievement, advancement, and adventure. On a college campus, taught by Jesuits, he learns to think for himself, and he meets a new love, the audacious Sheila Blake, a farmer's daughter from the West of Ireland. Only in her arms will he complete his education. Only by her love will he become a man. Together Sheila and Nick must face Nixon's America and the debacle in Vietnam. Only such a love can bring Nick full circle, to take the path of exile chosen in the beginning, three generations before, by Tony LaStoria himself.

The Education of Nicholas Petrovich is Volume 4 of Eugene Christy's monumental saga of three generations of an American immigrant family. Watch for the final Volume 5 of The Twentieth Century Quintet coming soon this summer in 2021 from Adelaide Books.

Eugene Christy is a novelist, poet and musician currently enjoying retirement in his home in the Berkshires. His maternal grandparents Antonio Scioscia and Giuseppina Fabrizio came from Alta Villa Irpina, near Avellino, in the South of Italy. He is a graduate of both Boston College and the University of Rhode Island, where he did his master's degree in 1970, focusing on the authors of the Irish Literary Revival. At Boston College, he studied under Seán Ó Faoláin, and as a post-graduate under James Dickey and Larry McMurtry.

His current project, seven years in the making, is called THE TWENTIETH CENTURY QUINTET, five novels telling the saga of Antonio LaStoria and his descendants through three generations in America from 1899 to 1972, now being published by Adelaide Books, New York and Lisbon, in 2020 and 2021.
