I, Mona Lisa (Jeanne Kalogridis)

I am ignorant of Italian history, but I found this novel to be entertaining, albeit in a campy way. A few too many coincidences and interesting turns of events for it to be believable, but it is fiction, right?

An interview with the author suggests that she is fastidious about attention to historical detail, which is admirable. I enjoyed it and it was thick enough to be satisfying.
