Rafael Sabatini was born in Jesi, Italy in 1875 to an English mother and Italian father, both renowned opera singers. At a young age, Rafael travelled frequently, and could speak six languages fluently by the age of seventeen. After a brief stint in the business world, Sabatini turned to writing. He worked prolifically, writing short stories in the 1890s, with his first novel published in 1902. Scaramouche was published in 1921 to widespread acclaim, and was soon followed by the equally successful Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk. He died on February 13, 1950 in Switzerland.Review:
"Mr. Sabatini is both a wonderfully fertile creator of exciting fiction and a stylist of distinction" * Punch *
