In 2004, while researching the online archives of her hometown newspaper for a client, freelance writer Rita Schiano made a keying error -- a simple mistake that led her to a path she'd been avoiding most of her life; on a journey inside the world of her father, killed gangland-style more than two decades ago. Schiano turned that difficult journey into an engrossing novel. Painting The Invisible Man is a poignant, often hilarious coming of age story that explores the complex dynamics of growing up in an Italian family on the fringes of the Mafia.
"Painting The Invisible Man is a courageous book by a courageous writer." -- Anne D LeClaire, author of Listening Below The Noise, Entering Normal, and The Lavender Hour.
