The first biography to be aimed at the general reader as much as at students and historians, No Ordinary Man is a fascinating study of the life and work of Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616), the writer known as the 'Spanish Shakespeare' and author of the timeless classic Don Quixote. A renaissance man in all senses of the term, Cervantes was, in his time, an adventurer, spy, soldier, hostage and creator of the first European novel. This biography is based on the latest original research and incorporates previously unpublished material on Cervantes' long period of captivity in Algiers, his involvement in piracy in the Mediterranean, espionage and the Spanish Armada and his work for the Spanish government. Containing much information never before available in English, No Ordinary Man makes an important contribution to the understanding of this unique literary and historical figure.
