Renato After Alba
His Rage Against Life, Love & Loss in His Own WordsUnknown - 2016
"Renato After Alba" is a stand-alone sequel to "Renato, the Painter," but it is profoundly different in form and substance. As the title suggests, Mirabelli's subject is loss in all its forms: if grief is not merely tragic, but also lacerating, outrageous, touchingly comic, heart-rending and beautiful, then the person grieving is Renato Stillamare. The large-as-life painter is now a fragmented man living a life of messy human confusion - broken belief, desperate philosophy, and crazy hope. Writing at the top of his powers, Eugene Mirabelli has brought forth a stunningly original novel brimming with compassion and - against all odds - joy.
