Oil and Marble by Stephanie Storey

Host Ken Jones talks with Stephanie Storey, author of the new book Oil and Marble: A Novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo. The novel depicts the fierce rivalry between these two great artists as they struggle to complete their masterworks -- the Mona Lisa and the David -- amid the turbulence of early 16th C. Florence.

The New York Times called Oil and Marble: “Tremendously entertaining and 'unapologetic' in its artistic license.” Tune in to find out how Stephanie brought Leonardo and Michelangelo to life on the page, striking that delicate balance between history and fiction.
