Kevin Spacey says of Roman Candle: "David Evanier's new book, Roman Candle, tells the story of the young Walden Robert Cassotto --- who grew up to become Bobby Darin --- in a compelling and revealing way. His examination of Darin's impulses and influences give the reader a chance to go behind the persona and learn what it must have been like to grow up knowing that time was not on your side ... Roman Candle gives us the many lives of one of the great entertainers of all time, whose flame was extinguished way too soon. It was a pleasure to read."

Jerry Wexler, producer, Atlantic Records: "In Roman Candle, David Evanier relates the Bobby Darin story with empathy and insight. His chronicles of the triumphs and vicissitudes of Bobby's star-crossed life is packed with illuminating details and a page-turning seductiveness. Here is the ultimate tribute to the life and times of a true American original."
