Diane Lefer has written a fun, brilliant and dizzying book. Combining an incredible eye for the absurd realities of history with philosophical arguments and a breakneck adventure The Fiery Alphabet takes us on a wild ride through 18th century Europe on the way to the Holy Lands. The two main characters are a female mathematical prodigy who is treated as a witch and her lover, life-tutor, the notorious charlatan, Cagliostro. All in all, I highly recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
