The Lost Journals of Michelangelo: Volume I


In 1486 when Michelangelo was eleven years old he was given a book of blank pages from his brother Lionardo. It was his only birthday gift. He had been living in Firenze one year with his father and brothers and was very homesick for the hills of Settignano. He decided to write in the book and keep it secret from his brothers.
The journal (as imagined by the author after extensive research) follows him through to thirty-two years of age. It includes his good fortune to meet Granacci and become apprenticed to Ghirlandaio, and then being catupulted to seeming princehood at the palace of Lorenzo Medici where he studied with Bertolo who was a student of Donatello. See life through Michelangelo's eyes as he struggles with the Rome Pieta and David.
