Product description

Review

"This is a masterful work, in many respects a new kind of narrative nonfiction. Dancing seamlessly between past and present, Eric Scigliano illuminates Michelangelo through the sculptor's passion for special stone, set against the story of the stone itself and the people who still share that passion today. His strong, polished, yet informal prose -- reminiscent at times of the marble he describes -- is the perfect vehicle for this remarkable balancing act." -- Paul Robert Walker, author of "The Feud That Sparked the Renaissance" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Eric Scigliano's ancestors were quarry-men and stone carvers in Carrara. He is the author of Love, War, and Circuses: The Age-Old Relationship Between Elephants and Humans and two regional books, Seattle from the Air and Puget Sound: Sea Between the Mountains, and the co-translator of Trinh Công So'n's wartime poetry. An award-winning journalist, Scigliano has written for Harper's, Outside, Discover, and many other publications. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
