  • City of Fortune is Sunday Times 'Paperback Pick of the Week'.

    06 Aug 2012

    Congratulations to Roger Crowley whose City of Fortune was Sunday Times ‘Paperback Pick of the Week’.

    “The rise and fall of the Most Serene Republic of Venice is one of the most dazzling and extraordinary in history, and Crowley makes a wonderfully eloquent guide. The story, from Ascension Day 1000 to around 1500, is a large and diffuse one, but Crowley is such a natural narrative historian, with such an eye for colourful, telling details and such a knack for dramatic character sketches, that he is a constant joy to read.”
