The writers afterlife : a novel by Richard Vetere( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
"The Writers Afterlife is the story of Tom Chillo, a 44-year-old writer on the verge of fame, who suddenly dies of a stroke and finds himself transported to a place where all writers are sent after they die. After mingling with "The Eternals"--Including Shakespeare, Wilde, Keats, and Tolstoy--he discovers that his true peers in this new world are all haunted by the same regret: they never achieved the fame they felt they deserved during their lifetime. There's still a chance, though. Every writer has the opportunity to return to earth for exactly one week and convince someone to set the wheels in motion to give their life's work widespread notoriety. The trick is to come up with the perfect plan the first time. Failure is not an option."--Publisher's website
Caravaggio by Vittorio Sgarbi( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
"Cast: 6m., 1w., extras if desired. Caravaggio is set in Rome in 1600 when the city was vibrant with artists, powerful religious leaders, the Inquisition and street violence. A famous painter in his lifetime, Caravaggio kills a man in a brawl and finds a bounty on his head put there not only by the dead man's family but by the Vatican itself. Cardinal Del Monte, his protector, secures a commission for Caravaggio on the isolated island of Malta while he works behind the scenes to convince the pope to pardon the painter. Caravaggio paints the portrait of the Grand Master of the Knights, learning that the powerful man has one thing on his mind and that is to save Caravaggio's wretched soul. Tortured, Caravaggio escapes, racing to Naples where he finds refuge with his arch artistic nemesis, the famous Annibale Carracci. What Caravaggio doesn't know is that his competitor, Carracci, suffers from an inability to create. Visited by his lover, Francesco, and his model and lover, Lena, and with his life hanging in the balance, Caravaggio finds in his exile inspiration that makes him create a dynamic change in art. Through his suffering and his search for God, he creates the style of art we now call Baroque. Unit set. Approximate running time: 2 hours."--Publisher's website

"New York. Winter. 1980. Behind the glitter of the disco era, the city streets run wild. In countless secret spaces, high stakes poker games fuel an underground economy flush with cocaine, champagne, and call girls. Winners are on top of the world. But no one wins forever, and when aspiring novelist and inveterate card player Danny Ferraro goes "all in"--and then some--he winds up owing the mob big money. And when you owe the mob, you pay--or else. With nowhere to run, Danny is forced to commit unspeakable acts just to stay even. Richard Vetere's gritty novel strips the gloss of the "Godfather" era and lays bare the gritty reality of the subversive blackmarket as Ferraro struggles to free himself of its grip."--Publisher website
