"And as for beauty, sir," went on Marco Polo, "there is nothing in the world like San Marco's, and it ablaze in the setting sun, and the great pillars before it rising in tongues of flame. And was there ever in all time anything like the Grand Canal at the dusk of day, and the torches beginning to show like fireflies, and the lap of the water, and stringed music, and the great barges going by like swans, now a battle-hacked captain of war, now a great gracious lady? And the moon does be rising."from the book
A Romantic Novel from the Irish Novelist
Imagine the kingdom of Asia sifted through the Celtic imagination. Messer Marco Polo is the fictionalized account of the travels of Marco Polo as told by Malichi Campbell, an Ulsterman. Young Marco Polo meets Kubla Khan, the King of Siam, and Saint Paul, and he falls in love with the beautiful Golden Bells. After her magicians save him from death in the desert, he stays and marries her. Following her death, Polo returns to Venice as an old man. Audiobook producer Stefan Rudnicki and acting legend Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. were reminiscing one day about favorite childhood books when they both recalled Messer Marco Polo as one of the best. The result is this collaborative effort for a truly charming audiobook.
