"But for sheer joy of reading, reach for Michelangelo: A Life on Paper, by Leonard Barkan ($).The writer is a professor of comparative literature at Princeton, and his view of the artist usually regarded as superhuman, a Sistine-style colossus, is through the intimate, sometimes all-too-human medium of his words—private letters, poems, notes to self—as well as drawings.
