    Repeatedly reinterpreted to offer certainty and solace in times of peril, from the Great Fire of London to September 11th 2001, the inscrutable predictions of Renaissance polymath Michel de Nostredame (1503-1566) have enthralled generations. In this thought-provoking book Gerson uses research in European and American archives to examine Nostradamus' life and afterlife, arguing that the lasting fascination we feel for him tells us more about our past and present than our future.
