The Turquoise Ring
Acclaimed novelist Grace Tiffany revisits Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice and offers a radical new interpretation of the famous character, Shylock. In 1568, 21-year-old Shiloh ben Gozan flees the Spanish Inquisition to live openly as a Jew in Venice and brings with him a turquoise ring. In Venice, as this ring is lost, stolen, traded and found again, it shapes not just Shiloh's life, but also that of his great enemy and business rival. 'A passionate and evocative take on the Shylock story.' - Joel Gross
Historical fiction, Venice (Italy), Jews
