Reviews

"In this portrait of an artist full of lust and rage, Eugene Mirabelli once again marries the realistic and romantic modes. Renato, the Painter offers us the intimate workins of an aging man at the height of his powers who fears that they will ebb; he and his women and paintings are vividly rendered: fierce, fine." -- Nicholas Delbanco "publisher"
"A lively comic romp through the early high promise of the painter Renato, and his late-life desperation over the art world's non-recognition of his work. Age bends and fate twists this artist, but he carroes on with his 'perishable art and human love' the indefatigable artist as his own work of art. -- William Kennedy "[publisher]"
"This generous, sprawling, fleshy novel of a life lived among lovers, friends, olives, wine, bread, and prosciutto, is a fresco of Sicilian-American-New England life....He is a not-quite-successful painter or husband who loves both painting and sex with greedy bonhommie until, as an old man, he finds his imperfect life quite adequate..." -- Andrei Codrescu "[publisher]"
