Promotional Information

About the Author

Joseph Markulin (Roxbury, NY) is a former professor of Italian and Comparative literature with a specialization in Medieval and Renaissance studies. After a brief but brilliant academic career, including publications ranging from Dante, Boccaccio, and Machiavelli to Fellini and contemporary Italian cinema, Markulin joined the fast-moving, not to say Machiavellian, world of public relations. He has worked for various corporate executives as a speechwriter and has ghostwritten articles and op-ed pieces that have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Fortune. He currently lives in New York's Catskill Mountains where he raises organic vegetables, fruit, nuts, and chickens.


""Frequently delightful..." --Wall Street Journal "An enjoyable romp through a fascinating period in European history." --Booklist
