This was a very pleasant and short read. This story is set in the 20's within a speakeasy, owned by one Eddie Durante. His wife recently was killed and he is finding bodies in the back rooms of the speakeasy. The story is fast-paced, and the humor is great. The characters get just enough of a backstory to be relatable, but not too much as to bog the story down. Short and not so sweet The resolution was obvious. The grammatical errors that were unintentional not written to be part of the dialog made it tough to keep reading.
But some parts were fairly poetic in the descriptions. To get in, you have to know who and how to ask. Contributing editor Erica Firpo got the hook-up. I had heard about a bar that didn't exist. Well, at least not in the find-it-in-the-phone-book sense of existing. Rumor had it that there was an itsy-bitsy hole-in-the-wall that served delicious and beautifully mixed drinks to the few who knew the right way to ask.
A speakeasy, and all I had to do was find the right way to talk up the right kind of guys for the right kind of invitation. Once I had the address, I crossed town in Milan that can take twenty hot minutes if the Navigli neighborhood is packed and landed in front of a quickie mart. One of those multi-tasking convenience store that sells everything from designer water and panini to waving plastic cats and herbal medicine. Yes, that's really their website.
It's meant to be confusing. An aproned attendant asked for my name, whispered it into a medical cabinet, and walked me through a secret door. It rolls off the tongue with the same ease as its delicious cocktails. Angiolillo and Russo's cozy speakeasy is hidden behind the hustle and bustle of Italy's fashion capital. First, the atmosphere.
Very s, with exposed brick walls, warm tones, and period furniture: gramophones, leather couches, telephone tables, and credenzas. Fitzgerald, Gillespie, Piaf, and Armstrong are on replay.
