With their stomachs churning on the jewels they have swallowed, the courtesan Fiammetta and her companion dwarf Bucino escape the sack of Rome. It’s 1527. They head for the shimmering, decadent city of Venice. Sarah Dunant’s epic novel of sixteenth-century Renaissance Italy is a story about the sins of pleasure and the pleasures of sin, an intoxicating mix of fact and fiction, and a dazzling portait of one of the worlds greatest cities at its most potent moment in history.

Reviews

You can't fault a novel that begins "Italy, 1526" and, narrated with suppressed fury by Tom Hollander, it only gets better... This is a wonderful novel: constructed by a craftsman and, except that it is quite rude, perfect to listen to on a long drive to Italy... [Hollander] is a brilliant narrator, able to capture the stroppy anger of a dwarf perfectly
