A Fool and His Money, Paperback

A Fool and His Money Paperback


Few books have captured the atmosphere of daily medieval life as well or as movingly as "A Fool and his Money".

Rodez, in southern France, was divided for centuries by a fued between two masters.

This partitioned town thus acquired two distinct cultures.

The story focuses on the strange case of Peyre Marques, a merchant who forgets where he has buried his gold.

To read "A Fool and his Money" is like opening a shutter on to a sunlit medieval street teeming with characters, talk and noise all coloured with the vibrancy of truth.
