A hard-working but only sporadically entertaining ””autobiography”” by the Admiral of the Ocean Sea himself. Marlowe’s Columbus is a breezy wise-guy (””Eat your heart out, Vasco da Gama””) looking back over 500 years, having decided to debunk his biographers and set the record straight at last.
Marlowe makes humorous capital of the perennial rumor that Columbus began life as the son of forcibly converted Jews, an ineffectual father and a powerful mom who preferred a Passover seder to an Easter Sunday dinner any day. These ””memoirs”no small achievement for a confessed illiteraterelate his life in scarlet detail.
