House of Holy Fools: A Family Portrait in Six Cracked Parts

"House of Holy Fools: A Family Portrait in Six Cracked Parts" concerns the grace and genius of author Amy Biancolli's '85 grandparents--music critic Louis Biancolli and violinist Jeanne Mithcell Biancolli- and her sister Lucy, an aspiring painter. All three of Biancolli's family members died within 26 months of each other between 1992 and 1994; Biancolli captivates the lives of her family members and her coveted relationships with them. "Written with humor and hope, it is a memoir of music, madness, miracles, faith and the insistent tug of life in the face of grief and death," writes Biancolli.
Amy Biancolli '85 is a musical biographer, film critic and essayist whose work has appeared in books, newspapers, magazines, on the radio and on the Web. She is the author of "Fritz Kreisler: Love's Sorrow, Love's Joy" (1998 Amadeus Press).
