When I began writing The Italian Party , which is set in , I wanted to explore a marriage of convenience, with the twist being that neither husband nor wife knows the secret the other is keeping, at first. It felt like a fresh take on those goofy romantic comedies with Rock Hudson and Doris Day that now have a whole new uncomfortable layer of meaning. I was interested in examining a marriage with secrets for several reasons.
Real life marriages of convenience were undoubtedly more common than we know. I would bet every one of us has a few in our family tree. I imagine each pairing had its own complicated mix of emotions surrounding secrecy, attraction, and fidelity. Gay actors, writers, and musicians throughout history often had to marry or risk losing their audiences. I am illuminating a few here not out of prurience, but to ask us to imagine what the emotional cost was for those who had to keep their true selves secret from the world, and what we lost or gained as a result of the pain they no doubt endured.
