A Roman Singer is an 1884 novel by F. Marion Crawford. First serialized in The Atlantic from July 1883 to June 1884, it was published in book form in 1884. It was among the best selling books in the United States in 1884.
The novel is set in Rome. Crawford was born in Italy and spent a fair amount of time there, including, most immediately before writing this novel, studying Sanskrit at the University of Rome from 1876-78. He wrote A Roman Singer in early 1883, and moved back to Italy that same year. The story revolves around the love of an Italian tenor for the daughter of a Prussian officer.
