“Caught in the undertow of his salty lemon lips I caught myself drifting helplessly into a soundless summer unconsciousness.”
At the age of nineteen Nica Galas published her first book, the autobiographical tome Falling into the Sea which chronicled her short and torrid love affair among the hot beaches and lemon trees in the Gulf of Naples. The breathtaking story opens with Nica and her girlfriends picking bunches of jasmine flower for boys while they cliff-jumped into the sea. An innocent first kiss erupts into an ardent summer entanglement which is cut short one moonlit night when her lover leaps into the dark abyss never to surface, leaving Nica naked on the cliffs screaming his name. Falling into the Sea is is sunshine in a bottle, perfect on cloudy days to invoke the ardor of summer.
