Read full description of the books:



Everybody is prejudiced about Savonarola, for or against, everyone, there's nobody in the world who's heard his name who doesn't have a bias. I've read so many things that are hagiographies and things that are attacks that it's really refreshing to re-read this one which is measured, calm, full of names and specific. While Martines is on Savonarola's side (everyone!), he's not viciously opposed to everyone else, and he can see positives and negatives. What I'm saying here, I suppose, is that I largely agree with him. It's also interesting to see Martines -- a respected emeritus professor -- launching off into alternate history at one point. It's even more interesting to me, because I've just written a Savonarola novel in which this is one of the few variants I didn't go with. This is a balanced and grown up book and I recommend it if you don't mind that the writing style is a little dry.
