Publisher Comments:

Celebrating the 500th anniversary of Michelangelo’s David, New American Library releases a special edition of Irving Stone’s classic biographical novel—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.

Synopsis:

A #1 New York Times bestselling classic that "glows with the fire of one of the world's greatest geniuses" (Saturday Review Syndicate). Celebrating the 500th anniversary of Michelangelo's David, NAL releases a special edition of Irving Stone's classic biographical novel in which both the artist and the man are brought to life in full.

About the Author

Irving Stone was born in San Francisco on July 14, 1903. He wrote several books in a genre that he coined the “biographical novel,” which recounted the lives of well-known historical figures. In these novels, Stone interspersed biography with fictional narrative on the psychology and private lives of his subjects. 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.
