Japango: The Tale of Columbus by Richard Epp
Surrounded by the extraordinary characters of his long life, Christopher Columbus recounts his voyages of discovery. Driven by a passionate desire to reach the Orient, the old admiral denies the existence of the new world. JAPANGO is a contemporary portrait of an outrageous hero.
"Richard Epp's lucid writing (in JAPANGO) is carefully researched . . . Epp presents a brilliant but egotistical adventurer who shows gentle love and violent hatred in equal measure."
"(JAPANGO is) resourceful and creative speculation."
