Blood and Beauty by Sarah Dunant

Blood & Beauty

“The more outrage the better. That way people will fear us while we are alive and never – ever – forget us when we are dead…”

‘Dunant brings fifteenth century Italian cities vividly alive – the lawlessness and violence, the diseased and damaged bodies, the debauchery and corpses… an intelligent and passionate book’ –  Sunday Times

‘Gripping . . . a must-read’ – Daily Mail
