““His efforts to recapture the quality and memories of Sardinia, the wine, and his friends from the 1960s have resulted in a novel of superior literary merit. ... Of particular note is Wright’s ability to elicit the morals and mores of 1960’s Sardinia.”

--M. Wayne Cunningham, ForeWord Clarion Reviews

 

“This is without a doubt as good as one of Graham Greene's ...  Astute readers might be reminded as well of the "Alexandria Quartet" by Lawrence Durrell.”

--Chicago Center for Literature and Photography

 

“‘Sardinian Silver’ is an engaging, entertaining read. In it, author Anthony Colin Wright uses powerful imagery and a vivid cast of characters to bring a compelling story of love--both sought and lost--to impressive life. Wright’s depictions of Sardinia and its lush, flowing features is enough to make the reader pine for an extended stay, and the sheer earnestness of Arthur’s ill-fated pursuits is sure to spark the flames of nostalgic passion in many a lovelorn soul ... ‘Sardinian Silver’ is a sobering, yet amusing reminder of the emotional fragility that lies within us all. Highly recommended.”

--Linda Waterson, Apex Reviews

 

“Writers like Wright help map out this rugged landscape of masculine desire and yearning in a concise and evocative prose that subtly lifts the curtain on the softer parts of manhood, ones that countless men have been trained to leave untouched and unexplored ... This erotic desire seems destined to be thwarted by the very foreignness that so beguiles, its contours so rigidly formed by the strict sexual repression of Sardinian culture ... This is a novel that is all about a Sense of Place ... It makes us understand that there was something there, something unique, and something now forever gone. It is sad, like a lost love, a lost friend, a lost innocence. Nonetheless, it is beautiful.”

--Peter M. Fitzpatrick, US Review of Books

 

From the first word, A. Colin Wright’s love for Italy takes center stage. Instantly, you find yourself walking the streets of Sardinia with Arthur. You feel the sand between your toes as they relax at the beach. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to identify with Arthur as he confronts his torrent of emotions and desires in a setting rich with culture and beauty ...  If you enjoy youthful romance surrounded by an exotic setting then ‘Sardinian Silver’ is a must have.”

Sardinian Silver

 

“During the 1960's the island of Sardinia provided an exotic setting for Arthur Fraser in both business and pleasure.

 

Arthur, by trade, is a travel representative from England and has the good fortune of working the summer at this quiet, undeveloped tourist hotspot. Sardinia, off the coast of Italy, has charm and romance around every corner. Many come to soak up the sun, experience the relaxed lifestyle and absorb the culture but leave with much more. The island has also cast its spell on Arthur as he, with all his youthful vigor, is determined to find love or the idea of it.

 

Arthur soon develops a small circle of friends while pursuing the young ladies during his summer stay. These friends help him understand the customs and traditions of Sardinia while others remind him of home. It is not long before he is smitten by one particular Sardinian girl and finds himself going to the ends of the earth to win her heart. Unfortunately for our young Author, he has a lopsided competition for the girl's love with one of his closest friends.

 

Love is, indeed, in the air for Arthur but not where he expects it to be. In his youthful exuberance he misses the signs of attraction and love that can be discovered only with age and experience. Will Arthur win the heart of the girl he loves or learn a very important lesson of life?

 

From the first word, A. Colin Wright's love for Italy takes center stage. Instantly, you find yourself walking the streets of Sardinia with Arthur. You feel the sand between your toes as they relax at the beach. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to identify with Arthur as he confronts his torrent of emotions and desires in a setting rich with culture and beauty.

 

‘Sardinian Silver’ delivers the multiple levels of emotional development experienced by men in their youth. Wright has skillfully developed an exquisite group of settings in which the story unfolds. If you enjoy youthful romance surrounded by an exotic setting then ‘Sardinian Silver’ is a must have.
