Description - The Dons by Archimede Fusillo

Paul is trying to escape. He's trying to escape from an Italian heritage that just doesn't seem to have relevance for him any more, and he's trying to escape from his nonno. They come from two different worlds, he and his grandfather, and Paul is more interested in his own world - his friends, the girls, the fast cars, the go-carts - than Nonno's strange and embarrassing behaviour. Nonno is more than just a silly old man getting in the way of Paul's lifestyle, though. Nonno has more stories to tell than Paul can even begin to imagine. But there is one big problem - Nonno is losing his mind. From the author of the highly successful Sparring with Shadows comes an irresistible, inspiring and brilliantly evocative story of family love, loyalty and wisdom.

Author Biography - Archimede Fusillo

Archimede Fusillo, the son of Italian migrants, was born and grew up in Melbourne. Surrounded by wonderful storytellers, he learnt early on the value of stories in shaping our lives and connecting people, irrespective of backgrounds. Success with short stories about growing up in a multi-cultural Melbourne led Archie to try his hand at writing a novel. In 1997 his first novel, Sparring With Shadows, was a Notable Children's Book Council of Australia book and went on to be shortlisted for the Italy in the World Literature Awards. He followed this up with The Dons and later Last of the Braves, among others. Apart from writing full time, Archie loves fishing with his son, shopping with his wife and daughter, and getting away to the Victorian south coast as often as his busy travelling schedule and domineering cat allow.
