Book summary: The Dorothy Dunnett Companion II


The Dorothy Dunnet companion provides an encyclopaedic guide to the historical world she describes in her novels, illuminating the rich tapestry of fact and allusion, of historial personages and places, events and politics, literary references and music that colour her work. This reference book covers both her "Lymond" sequence, which explores the intricacies of 16th century history, and the "House of Niccolo" series, set in the 15th century world of trade and war and banking. Arranged alphabetically, it is a treasure trove of information that provides a concise, complete yet idiosyncratic picture of the period. This volume contains the last three books in the "House of Niccolo" series and an overview of this novelists work and the period about which she writes.
