Product Description

The passionate biographical novel of Michelangelo. His time - the turbulent Renaissance, the years of poisoning princes, warring Popes, the all-powerful de'Medici family, the fanatic monk Savonarola... His loves - the frail and lovely daughter of Lorenzo de'Medici; the ardent mistress of Marco Aldovrandi; and his last love, his greatest love - the beautiful, unhappy Vittoria Colonna... His genius - a God-driven fury from which he wrested the greatest art the world has ever known...

He also wrote biographies of Clarence Darrow and Earl Warren, and short biographies of men who lost presidential elections. He died on August 26, 1989.
