In his novel, All' Acqua, Hansueli Schlunegger interweaves a tale of romantic love and adventure while guiding the reader across landscapes--geographic and culinary. At the heart of the tale of conflicted love stand two men who are obsessed with the same woman. The story unfolds in sleepy Alpine villages, in the brilliant salons of Milan's high fashion, on cliff-sides, and in candlelit mountain cabins. Schlunegger offers up an adventure for the heart and palate. "What one man sought, the other was about to toss aside."
