Praise

Praise for The Athenian Women and Alessandro Barbero

The Athenian Women is a raw and compelling portrait of 411 BC Greece in which women must fight for justice and democracy in the face of oligarchy.”
—La Stampa

“[In The Athenian Women] Athens becomes the model of the contradictions that define every age–including this one….”
—La Repubblica

“Quite simply an extraordinarily beautiful book.”—WUZ on The Eyes of Venice

“This book is a true gem…The Eyes of Venice will transport you to a place and time like no other.”
—Historical Novels Review

“A love story, a war story, a story of hope, a story about encountering the Muslim world. in short, an adventure story.”—Panorama on The Eyes of Venice

“Unexpected twists and remarkable encounters, all in the best tradition of dramatic storytelling. With one extra ingredient: intelligent–it might be more accurate to say ‘perfect’ reconstruction of the historical setting.”
—Corriere della Sera
