Dorothy Dunnett, author of historical novels, is renowned for the skill and scholarship with which she weaves fiction with history against an impeccably researched background. "The Dorothy Dunnet Companion" provides an encyclopaedic guide to the world she describes, illuminating fact and allusion, historial personages and places, events and politics, literary references and music that colour her books. This reference book covers both her Lymond sequence, which explores the intricacies of 16th century history, and the House of Niccolo series, set in the 15th century world of trade and war and banking. Arranged alphabetically, it is a treasure trove of information that provides a complete yet idiosyncratic picture of the period and should be of interest to anyone who enjoys historical novels set in the Renaissance or the 16th century.
