La bellezza del suo viso - i lineamenti delicati incorniciati dalle folte ciocche di capelli - ci è stata tramandata dallo scultore Lisippo. Le sue imprese le ha raccontate la Storia: un impero sconfinato, dal Danubio all'Indo, difficile da immaginare, impossibile da credere. Ma chi era davvero Alessandro, il giovane re macedone che, nel IV secolo a.C., concepì il disegno della conquista del mondo intero, per poi morire, come Cristo, all'età di trentatré anni? "Il figlio del sogno", primo capitolo di una saga esaltante e avvincente, ci narra di un uomo che fu considerato un dio, dei suoi sogni ardenti, delle passioni violente che lo consumarono fino a distruggerlo. E ci svela anche una Grecia mai vista, una civiltà che, pur nota, ci appare oggi sconosciuta e affascinante. Poteva essere descritta così solo da uno studioso che, dopo averla indagata in ogni minimo particolare, ha voluto gettarsi alle spalle ogni sapere per restituirci la vita degli uomini. E capire un mondo.
