Description
"All his life, Giovanni Bernini has possessed an uncanny gift: he can imitate anyone he meets. Honed by his mother at a young age, the talent catapults him from small-town obscurity to stardom. As Giovanni describes it, "No one's disguise is perfect. There is in every person, no matter how graceful, a seam, a thread curling out of them. . . . When pulled by the right hands, it will unravel the person entire." As his fame grows, Giovanni encounters a beautiful and enigmatic stage singer, Lucy Starlight--the only person whose thread he cannot find--and becomes increasingly trapped inside his many poses. Ultimately, he must assume the one identity he has never been able to master: his own"--
Possessing an uncanny gift for imitating anyone he meets, Giovanni Bernini grows famous and falls in love with an enigmatic stage singer who challenges his talents and causes him to evaluate his own true self.
