From the Publisher"...the artist who emerges from these pages is paradoxically a far richer character than the one captured in fiction—as complicated as his art, and as fiercely intelligent as his times."
-Ann Landi, ArtNews
"Wallace’s (novel) is a detailed investigation that will repay the attention of a well-informed reader already familiar with Michelangelo’s art."
-ADRIAN W. B. RANDOLPH,Dartmouth College
"Don’t be intimidated by Wallace’s reputation as one of the world’s leading authorities on Michelangelo: this is a highly readable, and often very funny, tour through Michelangelo’s life and career. It gives a fresh assessment of Michelangelo, showing him not as the moody genius of legend so much as a deft business manager who, among other things, gave his workmen nicknames like Stumpy and Fats. Modern CEOs could learn much from him."
-Ross King, The Daily Beast
