ABOUT THIS BOOK:
The life of Cervantes is brought vividly alive in this exciting and well written novel. This is not a biography but, way more fun, is a fictionalized account that let's the author use his fantastic ability to imagine the life and thoughts of a historical figure. Every writer of misfortune and a life-long struggle to create his art will recognize himself in these pages, and perhaps be inspired to ignore the minor significance of accidental circumstances.(Publisher).
