About the Edition

Gianni and Vinnie Fresco, two very different brothers, grow up in a close but neurotic Italian-American family in a small town in Westchester County, New York. The responsible younger brother aids his reckless brother through the trials of his life. “Take the Silk Road Home” traces the journey of each brother through the 1960’s to the present day, relating their careers, loves, and relationship with one another and the women in their lives. The story begins hundreds of years earlier with a glimpse of ancestors past and ultimately leads to the curious events in the lives of both brothers. The simple life in the old country contributes to the paths both brothers take. There is a strong connection to Asia where one brother faces the horrors of the war in Vietnam and the other travels to China for adventure and inspiration. Cultures and national heritage enrich the human interactions and connections between friends, families and lovers and show that different backgrounds are less important to relationships than human emotions.
