A very original, well researched tale. The author has made a brilliant job of slicing through the France of Louis XIII in Richelieu's latter years to reveal it from differing viewpoints, via the eyes of an unusual hero - a dwarf - as we follow the varied successes and horrors of his life from bullied peasant boy to the royal court, & introduction to one of the most powerful men of the time, Cardinal Richelieu... and beyond. My curiosity was such that I couldn't resist reading up some of the history of the time but I recommend that you wait, hear the book out first!
