The "idea" of this small book actually being a "play" was intriguing to me and I wasn't disappointed either. Not only was the cover of the book lovely, I found the excerpts of French poet, Francois Villon's story, interesting and his poems to be hauntingly beautiful.

The writer, Lisa Monde, should be commended on this creation. She had done a beautiful job and I must say, the ending made me sad.

Would I recommend it, YES and I'm keeping it for my personal library.

About I Know All Save Myself Alone by Lisa Monde

Lisa Monde has woven a historical drama that focus on the life of this remarkable man in her play titled "I Know All Save Myself Alone." Francois Villon is best known for his "Testaments" and his "Ballade des Pendus". Born in poverty in Paris in 1430s, Francois Villon was known to be a person of unrestricting life and even had a reckless way of living common among the wilder youth of the University of Paris.

Lisa is the author of 8 musical librettos, several books for Musical Theatre shows and plays, including the Historical Drama "I Know All Save Myself Alone".

The area of her scientific interest is Musical Theatre. Starting from 2006 up to present she has written and published over 50 scientific works, some of them in the most prestigious scientific journals. Two books by Lisa Monde have been published in 2011 -- "The Health of the Singer's Voice " - a richly illustrated tutorial for singers, and the "Acmeology of the artistic performance", in which the issues of highest achievements of the Musical Theatre performers are being analyzed.
