[a] bewitching novel." - San Francisco Chronicle "Gaude's remarkable feel for such graceful human behaviour makes The House of Scorta never less than charming and sometimes strikingly truthful." - Financial Times "Rich and vibrant. This is a work of wonder." AudioFile, Maine "A rich canvas" Publishers Weekly "Inspired by his love for Italy and stories of his wife's family, Laurent Gaude paints a vivid picture of life in a poor Italian village.

Laurent Gaude is a skilful writer who pushes the story into unpredictable twists and turns that will keep you enthralled to the very end." Historical Novel Society Praise for Death of an Ancient King: "Gaude writes in a courtly language with an elegiac, almost hypnotic rhythm."
