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.

Trigiani's glittering mosaic of small-town characters sparkles: Bartolomeo's hilarious sister, Toot, is in desperate need of a post-divorce transformation, 13 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.

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 soiree at the Plaza Hotel, Rococo is Trigiani's masterpiece, a classic comedy with a heart of gold leaf.

    " Not as good as the Stone Gap books, but interesting from a Jersey perspective. Unfortunately, the geography was all off, and the Tick Tock Diner is NOT on Route 35! "

    " My favorite of all of Trigiani's books. The main character is a man - a decorator - hired to decorate the town church for a huge celebration. Laugh along and see the way the wacky and endearing construction crew gets along and tries to change their corner of the world. "

    " I have to admit, of all the Adriana Trigiani books I've read, this is probably my least favorite. I wasn't able to relate to the characters--I kept wanting them to come to life on the page as Trigiani's characters usually do, but they didn't. In addition, the storyline itself wasn't quite as engaging as those in her other novels, and there were few surprises. That being said, I still enjoyed the read. I loved Bartolomeo's interior design career and the detailed description of his rooms, of fabrics and pieces of furniture--a true creative talent of Trigiani. "
