Temporary Perfections

September 19, 2011 @ 6:00 pm - 12:00 am


Gianrico Carofiglio has had as colorful a life as his bestselling hero, defense lawyer Guido Guerrieri. A Senator now in Italy, he was a prosecutor and center stage in some of the most dramatic Mafia court cases. But it is his novels, a series of blockbuster mysteries (the latest was an instant #1 hit with over 450,000 in print) set in the coastal town of Bari, which have made his name internationally.

These acclaimed thrillers have been praised by writers at Time and The New Yorker as well as by other crime writers including Jeffrey Deaver. With his most recent entry in his series, Temporary Perfections, Carofiglio now moves to a new publisher (Rizzoli) and will be touring the United States this fall to talk about his series and the impact American culture– from boxing to movies –has had on his character and on his own writing career.
