9780670033539: Lucrezia Borgia: Life, Love, and Death in Renaissance Italy

The very name Lucrezia Borgia conjures up everything that was sinister and corrupt about the Renaissance incest, political assassination, papal sexual abuse, poisonous intrigue, unscrupulous power grabs. Yet, as bestselling biographer Sarah Bradford reveals in this breathtaking new portrait, the truth is far more fascinating than the myth. Neither a vicious monster nor a seductive pawn, Lucrezia Borgia was a shrewd, determined woman who used her beauty and intelligence to secure a key role in the political struggles of her day.

Drawing from a trove of contemporary documents and fascinating firsthand accounts, Bradford brings to life the art, the pageantry, and the dangerous politics of the Renaissance world Lucrezia Borgia helped to create.

Review:

"This Book Is Most Valuable for its clear-eyed attempt to understand Jackie's complex drives and emotions--and the portrait that emerges has more faces than a Picasso.... Bradford's depiction of her devastating grief--which still surfaced years after JFK's assassination--is heartbreaking."

Bradfords zest for this era is contagious. ("USA Today") A lively view of Lucrezia, capturing the glamour and tragedy of her story. ("The Wall Street Journal") This is also a tender and intimate account of a misunderstood and passionate woman. ("Elle")
