The Pope's Daughter

by Dario Fo Translated form the Italian by Anthony Shugaar Published by Europa editions 2015 I have very little education in European history. My only knowledge of the Borgias is a couple of previews of HBO programming. I had a general feeling of their deviousness and not much else. So reading the life of Lucrezia Borgia painting her as an heroic woman is a delight. Dario Po is a comedian and a playwright and it shows in his dialog. There are some real laugh out loud moments. Worth the read.
