Summary

The worlds of art, politics, and passion collide in John L'Heureux's masterful new novel, The Medici Boy. With rich composition, L'Heureux transports the reader to Donatello's Renaissance Italy, as witnessed through the eyes of Luca Mattei, a devoted assistant. While creating his famous bronze of David and Goliath, Donatello's passion for his enormously beautiful model, Agnolo, ignites a dangerous jealousy that ultimately leads to Agnolo's brutal murder. Luca, the complex and conflicted assistant, will sacrifice all to save the life of Donatello, even if it means the life of the master sculptor's friend and great patron of art, Cosimo de' Medici. John L'Heureux's long-awaited novel delivers a monumental and intimate narrative of the creative genius, Donatello, at the height of his powers. With incisive detail, L'Heureux beautifully renders the master sculptor's forbidden homosexual passions, and the artistry that enthralled the powerful and highly competitive Medici and Albizzi families.
