THE MALICE OF FORTUNE by Michael Ennis
Released: Sept. 11, 2012

"This is a dense narrative, permeated by the sights, sounds and smells of Renaissance Italy, and one that can stand shoulder to shoulder with Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose, with which it is sure to be compared."
In this epic novel, Ennis gives ample evidence that political and religious corruption in early-16th-century Italy makes anything vaguely analogous look like Sunnybrook Farm. Read full book review >
THE DUCHESS OF MILAN by Michael Ennis
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 1992

"Poignant and precise in its use of historical material: an engrossing saga of women and power, with characters larger than life yet distinctly, tragically human."
Lavishly detailed and intensely intimate: a second novel from Ennis, who here creates as exotic a situation as he did in Byzantium (1989) by focusing on the Machiavellian maneuvers and sexual politics of a critical period in the history of Renaissance Italy. Read full book review >
