Raymond DeCapites second published novel, A Lost King, has been described by Kirkus Reviews as a small masterpiece, so unique in spirit and style. If the mood of The Coming of Fabrizze is joyous, that of A Lost King is somber. Each of DeCapites novels is original in its own way, perhaps inspired by different moods. Writing in the New York Times in 1961, Orville Prescott described Fabrizze as an engaging modern folk tale so full of love and laughter and the joy of life that it charmed critics and numerous readers and was generally considered one of the most promising first novels of 1960, He found DeCapites second novel, A Lost King, was a different sort of book than Fabrizze: Fabrizze is an apologia for heroes- A Lost King is an apologia for dreamers.

A more mature book, it deals with a more serious theme--the relationship of a father and son...a pathetic and perhaps tragic conflict of personalities.
