Toby Lester, DaVinci’s Ghost: Genius, Obsession, and How Leonardo Created the World in His Own Image
“Like almost everyone, I’ve seen Leonardo’s drawing of the nude man in the circle. But until I read Toby Lester’s terrific new book, I had no idea about the story behind the picture--or even that there was a story behind the picture. Deftly weaving together art, architecture, history, theology, and much else, Da Vinci’s Ghost is a first-rate intellectual enchantment.” Charles Mann, author of 1493
“Every once in a while that rare book comes along that is not only wonderfully written and utterly compelling but also alters the way you perceive the world. Toby Lester’s Da Vinci’s Ghost is such a book. Like a detective, Lester uncovers the secrets of an iconic drawing and pieces together a magisterial history of art and ideas and beauty.” David Grann, author of THE LOST CITY OF Z
Toby Lester is a contributing editor to and has written extensively for The Atlantic. A former PeaceCorps volunteer and United Nations observer, he lives in the Boston area with his wife and three daughters. His previous book, The Fourth Part of the World, about the map that gave America its name, was a finalist for the Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers Award and was picked as a Book of the Year by several publications. His work has also been featured on This American Life.
