Memoirs of a Gnostic Dwarf

Author: David Madsen

Cover design: Marie Lane  

'Inquisitions, religious sects and orgies in Renaissance Italy makes for a historical caper with a blinding plot;and the eponymous street-urchin-turned-papal-envoy is an unforgettable narrator.' Sophie Ratcliffe in The Times

Memoirs of a Gnostic Dwarf was included in The Guardian's "1000 Novels To Read Before You Die" list. It is a cult classic, warm and fruity and a must read novel for lovers of the baroque, visitors to Rome, clergymen of all persuasions and readers who like their historical fiction with a big dollop of excess.
