A Lost King

Overview

Raymond DeCapite's second published novel, A Lost King, has been described by Kirkus Reviews as a "small masterpiece, so unique in spirit and style." If the mood of The Coming of Fabrizze is joyous, that of A Lost King is somber. Each of DeCapite's novels is original in its own way, perhaps inspired by different moods.

Overview

Raymond DeCapite's second published novel, A Lost King, has been described by Kirkus Reviews as a "small masterpiece, so unique in spirit and style." If the mood of The Coming of Fabrizze is joyous, that of A Lost King is somber. Each of DeCapite's novels is original in its own way, perhaps inspired by different moods. Writing in the New York Times in 1961, Orville Prescott described Fabrizze as "an engaging modern folk tale so full of love and laughter and the joy of life that it charmed critics and numerous readers and was generally considered one of the most promising first novels of 1960." He found DeCapite's second novel, A Lost King, was a different sort of book than Fabrizze: "Fabrizze is an apologia for heroes; A Lost King is an apologia for dreamers. A more mature book, it deals with a more serious theme-the relationship of a father and son - a pathetic and perhaps tragic conflict of personalities."

"A rapturous combination of hard-earned wisdom and musical wit." -from the Foreword

Meet the Author

Raymond DeCapite (1924 - 2009), a native Clevelander, drew on his family and his community heritage as inspiration for his books. His father and his maternal grandparents were immigrants from Italy. A graduate of Cleveland public schools, DeCapite received both his B.A. and M.A. from Western Reserve University. He knew the harder side of fighting for a living just as his characters did, having worked as a shipping clerk, a restaurant employee, a cashier, and a crane oiler. He was the recipient of the Cleveland Arts Prize, the Ohioana Award, and the Cleveland Critics' Circle Award.
