Book - 2007
Rate this:
An original historical work, this fascinating biography of the 17th-century Venetian spy Gerolamo Vano is told through the blending of fact and fantasy--surviving surveillance reports and ancient archives mesh with comic strips, imagined conversations, and vignettes of the author's self-reflection while on a pub crawl in modern Venice. With great diligence and careful research, this biography pushes the boundaries of how history is told while drawing insightful parallels between spy and historian and uncovering the coded world of politics, espionage, terror, and intense paranoia found in Venice in the 1600s.
