About this title


The World's Most Notorious Writer is an engrossing paradoxical portrait of an immensely gifted Italian polymath writer by the name of Pietro Aretino. Aretino was the most famous writer of the sixteenth century, Italian, English or otherwise, and yet today he is virtually unknown. He emerges out of the dark abyss of time like Hamlet's ghost to challenge Shakespeare's title as the world's greatest writer and then takes the reader on an unforgettable journey through the Italian Renaissance where his life culminates in an explosive climax that leads to the destruction of the holiest city in the world: Rome.
