I wrote La Dolce Vita to fulfill a promise I made to the woman I loved with all my heart for sixty years and continue to love until the end of time.
In writing this, I discovered myself. I learned who I am. I learned about selfless devotion. I learned that my life is truly a story. I had to read La Dolce Vita many times to convince myself that I actually wrote it and that my life was exciting and adventurous.
The material is fairly universal. There's a war story, one of the most factual and personal ever told; there's a war-related illness that took a lovely angel to cure. There is' academic therapy', quite demanding but rewarding - a message to the young. Mostly, there is a precious love affair that survived it all and brought us heaven out of hell. What survives this crucible of life is contained herein. I hope you enjoy sharing my journey and will benefit from my insights.
