About the Author

Cesare F. Rosati was born in Italy in 1946 and immigrated to the U.S. at the age of nine. A graduate of West Point (Class of 1970), he served in the U.S. Army for seven years obtaining a graduate degree in electronics from Stanford University during his service. In 1995 he retired after a career with the US Department of State, where he served as the Head of a US Delegation engaged in classified international negotiations.

In the late 1990s, after nearly forty years of writing poetry, Mr. Rosati turned to novels. Prairie Dogs PPL, first of a five-book series he has planned, was published in 2005 and followed recently by Adriana (SV-1). Readers eagerly await continuation of the Brock family's 'near-future' ventures into outer space and global politics.
However, success with novels has not diminished his love of poetry. In Love & Life, he takes an uncommon perspective on the poetic form. Using animate and inanimate objects to impart his particular brand of advice, the author offers a welcome comic flair to, often confused, teenage boys as they explore the two topics noted in the title - love and life.

When asked if he had not limited his audience by writing a poetry book aimed solely at teenage boys, he replied, "Not necessarily! Think about it. If you were a teenage girl, wouldn't you want to know what teenage boys are being told about you? And, if you are a parent, or grandparent, some of the 'Advisors' in this book might just fit the lessons you'd like to impart, without making you appear to be preaching to your teenager."

Mr. Rosati's unusual collection of 'Advisors' - including, A Bartender, A Father, An Old Pair of Blue Jeans, and A Bra - create an interesting springboard from which to provide some rather sage advice to teenage boys in a format that is both easy to read and entertaining.
