Beyond Reason

I’m starting The Agony and the Ecstasy. A biography of Michelangelo, it looks pretty impressive. Why? Besides the subject matter itself, it is not “biography” so to speak. The book describes itself as “biographical novel.” Hmmm. This is my first one in this new uncharted genre. So far (first page has been read) this is the way biographies should be written: as if novels. It is delicious.
