From Nicole Galland, acclaimed author of The Fool's
Tale, comes a marvelous evocation of a distant time and
place . . . and a breathtaking reexamination of one of
literature's classic villains
childhood, the precocious boy called Iago had inconvenient
tendencies toward honestyâ€”a failing that made him an
embarrassment to his family and an outcast in the corrupt
culture of glittering Renaissance Venice. Embracing military
life as an antidote to the frippery of Venetian society,
Iago won the love of the beautiful Emilia and the regard of
Venice's revered General Othello. After years of abuse and
rejection, Iago was poised to achieve everything he had ever
fought for and dreamed of . . .
But a cascade of
unexpected deceptions propels him on a catastrophic quest
for righteous vengeance, contorting his moral compass until
he has betrayed his closest friends and family, and sealed
his own fate as one of the most notorious villains of all
Inspired by William Shakespeare's classic
tragedy Othelloâ€”a timeless tale of friendship and
treachery, love and jealousyâ€”Galland's I, Iago sheds
fascinating new light on a complex soul, and on the
conditions and fateful events that helped to create a monster.
