Sarah Dunant


In the Name of the Family

‘Times vary and evil and good fortune do not always remain on the same side.’

So says Niccolo Machiavelli, the smart, young Florentine diplomat with a ringside seat on the rise and fall of history’s most deadly and charismatic family – the Borgias.

Sarah Dunant is THE novelist of the Italian renaissance. In In the Name of the Family – as in Blood and Beauty – she sweeps away the myths to bring alive the real Borgia family; passionate, brutal, complex and glorious, holding up a mirror to the moment of history that bred them.
