New York critic R. Rabinowitz called this lyrical novel of misplaced desire and ambition, thwarted passion, and enduring love, “Beautiful, wondrous, and wise.” Coleman, who lived on a small Italian island for almost a year, an island that could have been one of Homer’s mythic places, has woven family legend into a story of tragedy, triumph, and the healing power of art and music. Hollywood agent Bettye McCartt has called “The Italian Quartet”...”A classic that will still be in print in two hundred and fifty years,” and film-maker and producer Ismail Merchant captivated by Coleman’s depiction of island life contrasted with the magical allure of Venice had it in his sights for another of his enchanting productions at the time of his death.. “The Italian Quartet” weaves a never-to-be-forgotten spell.
