IN ONE HAND demonstrates the authors ability to evoke the street life of New York City, and allows the reader to delve into the mind of Tony Sardelli, a man who, on the exterior, is cold and tough. The author brings to him, however, a sensitivity and understanding which deepens the portrait of a basically gentle man. The seemingly contradictory facets of his personality are seen throughout his affair with Dana Lynn. On the surface, anyone who knew Tony would take him for a very lucky man. After all, he has a beautiful wife, satisfying career and an on-going affair with seductive movie star but the reader is privy to the inner turmoil that the affair is causing him. The author has a wry way with vernacular English prose, and his characterizations allows the reader to "know" the many people that Tony comes in contact with.>>>>>>>> Tami C. Editorial Coordinator >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> IN ONE HAND is a story depicting a man’s hardships in life when someone or something he learns to love is given to him and then almost as quickly, gets taken away. The story takes place in an era of inquiry and surprise, the 1960's, which is exactly what this book has to entail. The author will keep you guessing and in shock to the very last page. He is able to capture you in the story and embrace you with the details and emotions of the main character’s life; never to forget that life is what you make it and sometimes that isn't enough. The characters sketch themselves before the reader’s very eyes to convey a sense of understanding of the main character. Overall, I adored the book and couldn't help but fall under enchantment with the blessings and unfortunate happenings to Tony Sardelli.>>>>> Lauren P.
