Colin W. Sargent discusses his novel, THE BOSTON CASTRATO
Raffi left more than Rome behind. Snipped by a bishop as a boy, he is bundled off to America when the Church takes shame. Forbidden to use his voice, he explores other gifts that steal him into the society of Boston’s gangsters, necromancers, and the wild crew surrounding the poet Amy Lowell as he searches for a genuine love song. What E.L. Doctorow’s RAGTIME did for New York, THE BOSTON CASTRATO does for 1920s Boston.
