Other Works by Lenny Cavallaro
Niccolo Paganini was probably the most influential violinist of all time. He earned a fortune, enjoyed celebrity status, and became the subject of endless rumors -- one of which was that he had made a pact with the Devil. Many believed he had indeed sold his soul. How else to explain the man who managed incredible feats of virtuosity, and who took Europe by storm, entrancing her with such music as had never before been heard?
The Ibbur's Tale
Professor Benjamin Dinerstein is more than a little surprised to find someone in his home when he returns from class. As he notes, "I was even more startled, because I realized that she was one of my former students. However, I was far more taken aback when I remembered that she had died a few weeks earlier."
The Greatest Champion Who Never Was
Tom Molyneux, a black man born into slavery, wins his freedom with his fists. He then travels to England for two epic bare-knuckle bouts against the world champion, Tom Cribb. In the first contest, he knocked Cribb out, only to lose the fight as the result of various shady maneuvers. Truly he was "the greatest champion who never was."
