In the Matter of Nikola Tesla : A Romance of the Mind
by Anthony Flacco




Overview -
It is a monumental task, this getting into the mind of a man as complex and extraordinary as Tesla. Anthony Flacco is up to the task. IN THE MATTER OF NIKOLA TESLA: A ROMANCE OF THE MIND reads at times like a psychological exploration worthy of Dostoyevsky, at other times like one of John le Carre's espionage novels, and even sometimes like Joseph Campbell's mythical 'hero's journey.' --NY JOURNAL OF BOOK REVIEWS

This fictionalized story of the true-life genius Nikola Tesla--arguably the most influential inventor in history--offers a young-to-old portrayal in the form of A Romance of the Mind. It reveals his impassioned inner life and his secret love for Karina, the muse no one else can see who brings him life-altering inspirations.

Karina may be invisible to others but she is exquisitely real to him. It is for her, for the life and the work that she shares with him, that this gallant, passionate man maintains a loner's life even when he is working among many others and subject to their constant temptations.

Anthony Flacco's IN THE MATTER OF NIKOLA TESLA is really fascinating--especially for me as I've been very interested in Nikola Tesla for many years. I believe Tesla was one of the most special characters of last century. I hope that this book will soon become a film --Mario Spezi, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE MONSTER OF FLORENCE

Flacco does an admirable job of showing us a man who was sometimes the brilliant, prescient Master--the man with an eidetic memory--and sometimes the helpless dupe of lesser, venial men... A beautifully crafted handling of a difficult--and not always sympathetic--subject.--HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY
