Overview

Taking the bare bones of Miguel Cervantes's life, Jaime Manrique has accomplished a singular feat: an engaging and highly accessible take on a brilliant, enigmatic man and his epoch. Manrique breathes vivid life into his characters, including an intense rivalry between Cervantes and Luis Lara, the man who Manrique pins as the author of the controversial sequel to Don Quixote.

Reviews

Cervantes like we've never known him: the rogue, the lover, the soldier, the slave, and above all, the poet. In this novel, Jaime Manrique reminds us that the great writer was a man of flesh and blood whose eventful life seemed destined for great literature. --Esmeralda Santiago Jaime Manrique has written an exceptional historical novel, recreating with imagination and detailed accuracy the world of Late Renaissance in Spain. Manrique's rendering of the life of Cervantes is brilliant, and his solution to the mystery of who wrote the false Quixote is fascinating, and very persuasive. --Edith Grossman
