i just finished Valeria’s Last Stand. Very well written! Structure, plotting, character development-superb! I also liked the uplifting ending after all of the bottom-feeding of human behavior.
Just finish reading Valeria’s last stand and I would recommend to everyone to read
i got Valeria’s Last Stand for a Christmas gift, and loved it so much that I recommended it to my Southern Literature Book club, I know it doesn’t take place in the south, LOL, but I knew that Mr. Fitten was editor of the Chattahoochee Review, so I pushed the “southern” part, every one is reading it, and loving it. Cant wait tor read the next book!
Marc, I love your Valeria’s Last Stand. Beautifully written, engaging, a window into human heart, mind and behavior. Is what we all know about little towns life; the values, the gossips, the simplicity, the yearning, the fears and as for in the rest of the world, and the search for a love.
I will look for the other book, Elza’s Kitchen too. I am in Italy and noticed that there is an Italian version “L’Ultimo Amore di Valeria.” I’ll look for it to see if translation does right to it.
Thanks for a beautiful book!
Thank you. The fact that anybody takes time out of their day to send a note like this is amazing. I’d love to hear about the translation! I’m so glad you and others seemed to enjoy it.
