Although he is best known to audiences as an actor, As The World Turns‘ Paolo Seganti (Damian Grimaldi) is a man of many talents. In fact, he has just published his fourth book. “The Tin Funnel” is a kind of fairytale for teenagers and adults. Spanning from Italy to the United States and more than 200 years, it follows a child named Doccio who is reborn to travel through many generations, back and forth in time, as he learns about the world and his family.

The book has received rave reviews in Europe and the movie rights have already been optioned for it. It was originally written in what Seganti referred to as his own ‘archaic’ Italian and has been carefully translated to reflect his style. “The Tin Flute” is already available in bookstores in Italian and will soon become easy to obtain in English.
