Description

1926. Being the memoir of certain transactions in the life of Lazzaro Biancomonte, of Biancomonte, sometime fool of the Court of Pesaro. After a brief stint in the business world, Sabatini went to work as a writer. He wrote short stories in the 1890s, and his first novel came out in 1902. It took Sabatini roughly a quarter of century of hard work before he attained success with "Scaramouche" in 1921. This brilliant novel of the French Revolution became an international bestseller. It was followed by the equally successful "Captain Blood" in 1922. A prolific writer, he produced about a book a year. This historical novel begins: For three days I had been cooling my heels about the Vatican, vexed by suspense. It fretted me that I should have been so lightly dealt with after I had discharged the mission that had brought me all the way from Pesaro, and I wondered how long it might be ere His Most Illustrious Excellency the Cardinal of Valencia might see fit to offer me the honourable employment with which Madonna Lucrezia had promised me that he would reward the service I had rendered the House of Borgia by my journey.
