500 years ago a 37 year old man completed a work that became the cornerstone of High Renaissance art: the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Young Michelangelo is the definitive account of the early years of one of history's greatest artists, probing the thinking, artistic evolution and yearnings of a young man thoroughly convinced of his own exceptional talent. John T. Spike brings to life this momentous age, taking in the bonfire of the vanities and the siege of Florence, and reveals the overwhelming influence that Michelangelo's charismatic personality had on his contemporaries, including the Medici, Machiavelli and Leonardo Da Vinci.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Michelangelo is a difficult man to like, but impossible to resist. Spike captures his magnetism, his drive and the sheer scale of his ambition -- Sarah Bakewell * Sunday Times *
John T. Spike proves himself, yet again, as one of our most astute and readable authorities on the Italian Renaissance. He makes Michelangelo more fascinating than ever -- Ross King, author of Brunelleschi s Dome
Spike crystallizes historical detail into vivid, memorable imagery. . . . Alternating between accounts of the turbulent political atmosphere and details of Michelangelo's most private moments in the sculpture studio, Spike creates a rich narrative that promises more intrigue than the best adventure novel * Publishers Weekly *
