Irving Stone s classic biographical novel of Michaelangelo in which both the artist and the man are brought to life in full. A masterpiece in its own right, this novel offers a compelling portrait of Michelangelo s dangerous, impassioned loves, and the God-driven fury from which he wrested the greatest art the world has ever known."
