Stephen Greenblatt, The Swerve: "one of those brilliant works of non-fiction that's so jam-packed with ideas and stories it literally boggles the mind.

Greenblatt, of course, doesn't preach, but, instead, as a master storyteller, he transports his readers deep into the ancient and late medieval past..."
