Reviews

Praise for The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci

"An extraordinarily delicate achievement . . . Resembles the portrait of an age."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A gripping portrait of late-sixteenth-century cultural history in both the West and the East."
--Natalie Zemon Davis, Princeton University, author of The Return of Martin Guerre

"An extraordinary tour de force, a work of literature and at the same time a remarkable wide-ranging use of historical sources. This is the kind of history that most people in the profession cannot even begin to write."
--John King Fairbank, Harvard University
