'Armanno writes with such intensity, his words detonate off the page...The real surprise is the unfolding humanity of the novel. Armanno writes of people with a deep and loving kindness...an opera, full-blown and gut-wrenching.' THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD For Romeo Costanzo and the gallery of tempestuous characters he meets in the languid city of Brisbane, barriers of time and family and death barely exist. All that is important is the rage and compassion that may one day lead them to understand the 'river of memory' that twists and turns though their hearts. A passionate story of love and desire, Romeo of the Underworld brilliantly realises the promise of The Lonely Hunter and confirms Venero Armanno as one of our finest and most original writers.
