In fact, he wanted nothing. Tony Guiseppi had learned at an early age that looks were only the package. He knew he was exceptionally good looking. It did not impress him. Tony Guiseppi was half Italian (his father, Roberto, was a crotch-stroking, drunken native of Naples, who came to America in 1972 for a vacation and stayed), and half American (his mother, Ruth, would have been a Jewish princess if only her family had possessed money). As it was she was a waitress when his father came upon her - literally. They were married exactly one month before Tony entered the world.
