Amadeus, Paperback


This provocative work weaves a confrontation between mediocrity and genius into a tale of breathtaking dramatic power.

In the court of the Austrian Emperor Josef, Antonio Salieri is the established composer.

Enter the greatest musical genius of all time: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Salieri has given himself to God so that he might realize his sole ambition to be a great composer.

Mozart is a foul-mouthed, graceless oaf who has that which is beyond Salieri's envious grasp: Genius.
