I am quoting freely from several "The Swerve" reviews

".....full of Latin lore, vivid Renaissance characters, startling stories, .....truly the book that puts the epic back in Epicurean."

."....an inquiry into the culture of medieval monasteries, Florentine humanists, the scandal-ridden Renaissance Papacy......"

and not to be overlooked a critical disclaimer:

"Part biography, part philosophy....part pop history page-turner.

The Swerve proves as approachable as it is provocative."

Questions are welcome.

Noteworthy, the Classic Fiction Book Club has expanded to include non-classics and non-fiction and is now called the Harvard Book Club.
