  • A fiction about the various commedia del'arte characters and how they met/got started. VERY bawdy and uber-fun! Also a very thick, heavy book that will keep you occupied for a long time.


  • This author is obviously a playwright as evident by the snappy dialogue. It was entertaining while oddly informative. The strange cast of characters embark on a journey through Italy in the 1500s and occasionally running into and far away from several historical figures like Leonardo da Vinci and the Borgia brood.


  • Carnival of Saints by George Herman marries fact with fiction in the Italy of the early 1500's. It is a great way to get to understand stock characters such as Harlequin and Pantalone as this novel suggests how they might have been invented. A wonderful mix of history and fantasy which ends well.


  • Entertaining, interesting and historically informative. Full disclosure, this book is written by a relative. He is a talented playwright and writer.
