Synopsis
'The Fall is a moving portrait of a relationship with a child and a place. It is a rare book: by turns heartbreaking, angry and lyrical' - Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare With Amber Eyes . Step 1: Tito has cerebral palsy. Step 2: I blame Tito's cerebral palsy on Pietro Lombardo. Join Diogo Mainardi and his son Tito in a journey of 424 steps, starting with Tito's disastrous birth in Venice, in Lombardo's Renaissance hospital. It's a journey full of joy and reflection, and an honest exploration of fatherhood. It's a journey that follows the arc of Western culture, from Dante Alighieri, Rembrandt van Rijn and Claude Monet to Marcel Proust, Neil Young and Assassin's Creed , to show how one boy's fate has been shaped by history. Above all, it's a celebration of love and courage, and of the hope and faith we place in our children.
