Fans of Anne Tyler's quirky characters and her attention to family life, or Pete Hamill's depiction of diverse, ethnic, urban neighborhoods will connect to Most Precious Blood, set in the eleventh-hour of a declining Italian-American neighborhood where complex and often destructive loyalties have dire consequences. Hard Luck Lenny is the quintessential good son, brother, and father, and he fears a calamity will derail his son's future the way his own dreams were derailed years ago, but Frankie is preoccupied with thoughts of Gennaro DiCico, the son of a small-time mobster. Lenny's fears are realized when a cabdriver's son avenges his father's murder.

Sgambati paints a vivid portrait of Italian-American life in present day Queens where the past weighs heavier than the present. At once tragic and redemptive, Most Precious Blood is essentially a story of the messy way love, community and family play out and the price we pay for connection. - Trebor Healey, Lambda award-winning author of A Horse Named Sorrow and Faun.
