Book Description

18 July 2011
M is the name of an enigma. In his short and violent life, Michaelangelo Merisi, from Caravaggio, changed art for ever. In the process he laid bare his own sexual longing and the brutal realities of his life with shocking frankness. Like no painter before him and few since, M the man appears in his art. As a book about art and life and how they connect, there has never been anything quite like it.

'Written in a vehemently passionate and colloquial style, M is an abrasive, flawed, idiosyncratic book, but it is full of energy' (Daily Telegraph)

'A grand passion ... Wonderful art criticism' (Allison Pearson)

'A terrific book, a fantastically easy read' (Tony Parsons)
