Over the last decade Sarah Dunant has proved herself to be 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.
Her earlier Renaissance Trilogy – The Birth of Venus, In the Company of the Courtesan and Sacred Hearts are vivid reconstructions of womens’ secret histories in the characters of a Florentine Noblewoman, a Venetian Courtesan and the spellbinding and fascinating lives of the Sisters of Santa Caterina.
She has two daughters, and lives in London and Florence.
