Los Angeles, CA — PRESS RELEASE- After hitting the bestseller list with his Maxy Award-winning debut novel A Wistful Tale of Gods, Men and Monsters, celebrity chef-turned writer David Ruggerio introduces a love story to his readers. Say Goodbye and Goodnight releases June 11, 2020.

Say Goodbye and Goodnight takes us to Brooklyn in 1977 where we meet an up-and-coming fighter named Anthony Marino who falls for Gia, who becomes the love of his life. But the hatred their affair attracts could be their demise. Set against the backdrop of disco music and the grit of the city, this book takes readers to a time in history that liberated a generation.

Ruggerio says, “Say Goodbye and Goodnight is a novel that I lived. I have laced this tale with real people and real places, and most of all, real romance. It was truly a labor of love that at times I had trouble putting down my feelings on paper.”

Ruggerio’s Say Goodbye and Goodnight has received advance praise from prestigious reviewers. Reader’s Favorite refers to it as to a “modern-day retelling of a classic Shakespearean tale of love enduring all forms of tragedy,” and Sublime Book Review recommends it as “a well-written, unexpected, and unconventional love story.”

The book is currently available on pre-order on Amazon.
