In swampy Ischiano Scalo the adults are all losers and the children dream of escape. Meek little Pietro is constantly struggling with the torments of school bullies and indifferent parents. His only comforts lie in his friendship with Gloria (the prettiest, richest girl for miles) and his favourite teacher, Flora. And even they may not be enough to stop the rampage of the school psychopath.But Ischiano's most glamorous son is on his way home. Graziano Bigliano is the last of the great seducers- big and burly, long blond hair, aviator sunglasses and a brown leather jacket with an Apache eagle in pearls on the back. And he's returning to small-town life with lots to prove.With the momentum of a thriller and a cast of unforgettable grotesques, (from idiot policemen to self-obsessed would-be starlets, terrified headmasters to lustful janitors) Steal You Away is a masterpiece of betrayal and destruction, of thwarted hopes and unrequited loves, of grand dreams and sad realities.
