内容紹介

New York Times bestselling author Adriana Trigiani, beloved by millions of readers around the world for her humor, warmth, and captivating storytelling in the Big Stone Gap trilogy and Lucia, Lucia, takes on love, lust, tricky family dynamics, and home decorating in Rococo, the uproarious tale of a small Italian American town poised for a makeover it never expected.

Bartolomeo di Crespi is the acclaimed interior decorator of Our Lady of Fatima, New Jersey. To date, Bartolomeo has hand-selected every chandelier, sconce, and ottoman in OLOF, so when the renovation of the local church is scheduled, he assumes there is only one man for the job.

From the dazzling shores of New Jersey to the legendary fabric houses of New York City, from the prickly purveyors of fine art in London to luscious Santa Margherita on the Mediterranean coast of Italy, Bartolomeo is on a mission to bring talent, sophistication, and his aesthetic vision to his hometown.

Trigiani’s glittering mosaic of small-town characters sparkles: Bartolomeo’s hilarious sister, Toot, is in desperate need of a postdivorce transformation–thirteen years after the fact; “The Benefactor,” Aurelia Mandelbaum, the richest woman in New Jersey, has a lust for French interiors and a long-held hope that Bartolomeo will marry her myopic daughter, Capri; Father Porporino, the pastor with a secret, does his best to keep a lid on a simmering scandal; and Eydie Von Gunne, the chic international designer, steps in and changes the course of Bartolomeo’s creative life, while his confidante, cousin Christina Menecola, awaits rescue from an inconsolable grief.

Plaster of Paris, polished marble, and unbridled testosterone arrive in buckets when Bartolomeo recruits Rufus McSherry, a strapping, handsome artist, and Pedro Allercon, a stained-glass artisan, to work with him on the church’s interior. Together, the three of them will do more than blow the dust off the old Fatima frescoes–they will turn the town upside down, challenge the faithful, and restore hope where there once was none.

Brilliantly funny and as fanciful as flocked wallpaper, filled with glamorous locales from New Jersey to Europe, from Sunday Mass to the American Society of Interior Designers soirée at the Plaza Hotel, Rococo is Trigiani’s masterpiece, a classic comedy with a heart of gold leaf.


"A veritable crazy quilt of quirky Italian Americans ... Trigiani weaves all these subplots together with wonderful ease; every seam is perfectly straight, every pleat in place. Bartolomeo would expect no less. A-." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Clever ... Creating characters so lively they bounce off the page and possessing a wit so subtle that even the best jokes seem effortless, Trigiani is a master storyteller. Equal parts sass and silliness, Rococo is an artfully designed tale with enough brio to make Frank Gehry proud."-- People

レビュー

Praise for Adriana Trigiani

The Queen of the Big Time


“Full-bodied and elegantly written . . . [Trigiani builds The Queen of the Big Time] around an old-fashioned love story. . . . Pure pleasure.”
The Washington Post Book World

“Moving and poignant . . . Trigiani has again defied categorization. She is more than a one-hit wonder, more than a Southern writer, more than a women’s novelist. She is an amazing young talent.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

Lucia, Lucia

“This heartwarming tale is full of lessons about taking risks in life and love.”
Cosmopolitan

“Trigiani’s writing is as dazzling as Lucia’s dresses.”
USA Today

“Seamlessly superb storytelling . . . Trigiani never loses hold of the hearts of her characters–or of the wisdom that tragedy and redemption are also part of life.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

What a wonderful family story. If you have Italian heritage you will love the stories of family and food. Even contains some recipes you can try. But the devotion to church and God are evident in the way their lives are affected by the church. A thoroughly delightful story.

Three words sum up this book pretty well...Italian, Catholic and decorating. If you are not interested in these topics or easily offended, skip this one. I found it entertains, but choppy at times.
5つ星のうち 4.0 A Book Designed for the Interior Decorator 2012/10/8

I actually had to read the beginning of the book a second time because I didn't expect the main character, written in first person, to be a man. Sometimes, we assume too much when reading, and since the author is a woman, we expected the main character to be a woman. With that said, I will go on to my review of the book.

I loved so much about this novel! The setting is during the 70's in a small community in New Jersey. Bartolomeo is an Italian American, born and raised in a small town in New Jersey. His profession, interior decorating, is also his passion. He is the town's expert when it comes to style and fashion. All his life, it was his dream to renovate the church he was raised in, however the priest thought different and hired another decorator. B, as he is called, was devastated. However, in the story, the opportunity comes to him (when the original decorator didn't work out), and along comes the realization that though you are an expert to the locals, there is more of a challenge when you venture out of your comfort zone. B brings the world of design to the church, but not without conflict from the parishioners, he priest, and those doing the work with him.

The characters are all colorful, especially B's sister Toot, who is an older divorcee with 2 sons. B's relationship with her is one of love, respect and admiration, but a bit frustrating. It is this part of the book I enjoyed.

Of course, there is the parish priest, who has a secret, and the town's "grand dame", who has a daughter she would love B to marry. There is romance in the novel, but not for B.

I knew a Bartolomeo; Italian, Catholic and all, back in the early 80's whose home pretty well matched anything B would decorate. When I re-read the book, I imagined him as B.

If you are into decorating, you will love this book as the author goes into details on color schemes, textures, and designs. I bought this book for a friend of mine who is a local interior designer and she loved it.

This is a book that once you're done reading, you can say "now this is a great book". It just takes a bit getting into, mainly because of the detail on interior decorating..but then, this is what the story is about..an interior decorator and his relationships with those in his life.

The only reason I gave 4 stars (which I wish could be a 4 1/2) is because this is not what you expect at first.As I said, we sometimes over-assume. Also, there is a lot of detail in design, which some who read the book in my reading group, found distracting. The novel, otherwise is well written with a great story to tell.

There is not one book of Adriana Trigiani that I have read ( at least 6 or 7) which is not fabulous! Adriana writes with a wit amd humor which few authors can match!. The characters of her books are duo-nationals (American, Italians) with a culture of their own which only she can bring to life as they truly are!!!! Every time I read one of her books I laugh non stop because of the way her characters speak and behave, but again her superb writing is what makes her books unique!!!! Every person should at least discover one of her books, I am sure that from then on you will also be hooked!!!!!!!
