Botticelli in the Fire

4 Male, 3 Female

Jordan Tannahill Price: $14.99

"They’re going to kill you. They’re going to worship you, don’t get me wrong. But they are going to kill you"

Playboy Sandro Botticelli has it all - talent, fame, good looks

He also has the ear – and the wife – of Lorenzo de Medici

And Florence's hottest young apprentice, Leonardo.

But whilst he is at work on his breakthrough commission, The Birth of Venus, Botticelli’s devotion to pleasure and beauty is put to the ultimate test

As plague sweeps through the city, the charismatic friar Girolamo Savonarola starts to stoke the fires of dissent against the liberal elite

And now Botticelli finds the life he knows breaking apart

Forcing him to choose between love and survival

Jordan Tannahill’s hot-blooded queering of Renaissance Italy questions how much of ourselves we are willing to sacrifice when society comes off the rails
