A Darker Romance
Defining Giulia is a courageous tale of becoming. A visually enchanting story of the gift of what life entails; heart-breaking challenges of discovering young identity, the steely realm of superficial materialism, depth (and shallowness) of character and the lengths they brave, cancerous throes of rotten, stinking revenge, alluring and inflaming passion of attraction, and sensual indulgences of discipline in fetish all enclosed in a couple hundred pages of intrigue that shatter any boundaries of the norm. But what stands out in neon flashing lights throughout this account of fiction is that this story is the most beautiful depiction of unconditional love, opening eyes on how real love, broken down through all the bull to its purest, most unselfish form, does not in the least discriminate.
This is a story that will widen your horizons if you are valiant enough to confront the darkness of your own demons by adventuring to parts of yourself as well as others that lie beneath the surface of concealed inhibition, that you will unearth when you grab that shovel of interest and just start digging.
Gerry writes with pictorial genius; taking reader with him and his characters through a journey that will penetrate the soul, having one question their moral fiber and judgement, toying masterfully with the entire spectrum of fragile human emotion from licentious desire to tender and tumultuous love, from bottomless grief to infuriating madness, leaving one with fragments of your psyche that will never be the same once you turn that final page.
Read the book. You will understand.
