A stirring, poignant, and moving love story will soon touch the hearts of many as author A. Elio Borme shares this English adaptation of his Italian novel. My Dear Clochard awaits readers who have loved, are in love, had loved and lost, and are waiting to love.
Nicole is now a sixtyish lady, but still beautiful and spirited. She is single and lives a prosperous life, being the president of her own music production company. Pierre, the great love of her life while they both were still students, is a free-thinker, a visionary, and an often misunderstood individual because of the social changes he anticipates to help transform the world. Their love affair then had been beautiful and unique, but with the philosophical conflicts they had, it left little room for romance. That time, she simply wanted to be happy, like most other girls, but she just wasn’t mature enough yet for Pierre.
It has been years since they have last seen each other. One evening, as she is watching television, she recognizes his old flame, Pierre. But what makes it really interesting is that the TV report is a documentary on the life of the “clochards” in the city. She is shocked that Pierre now lives in the Trocadero, together with other street people without shelter. Overwhelmed with emotion, she visits her friend Michelle and they muse over the past. Because she couldn’t believe it, she thinks that Pierre is just masquerading as a “clochard” for some eccentric reason. So, the following day, she goes and visits him at his old address. She wants to talk to him and ask him so many questions. But what will Nicole find out?
My Dear Clochard is indeed a beautiful tale of love, society, change, hope, and life. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
About the Author
Antonio Elio Borme was born into an Italian family at Rovinij (now Croatia) in 1935. At a very young age, he was predisposed to music, a precocious avocation, unfortunately not encouraged by his parents. He spent his youth in Italy, in Desenzano on the Lake of Garda, and in Rome where he studied medicine. He graduated from medical school in 1960, was married in 1962, and has two sons who live in the United States. His life was always dedicated to literature and humanity studies, with emphasis on the great Italian and Greek classics. He pursued the medical profession as a surgeon in Italy, England, Canada, and the United States. Today, he has become a full-time writer. My Dear Clochard is already being published in Italy as well as a few earlier works, which will also be published in France. This work, besides lending a voice to the less privileged of society, is also a token reminder; it chronicles a time when history was not made by gladiators—the common trait symbolizing the fall of an empire—but by leaders. He has a number of literary projects, such as a new version of Virgil’s Aeneid. He lives in Dallas, Texas, with his second wife.
