Because I haven’t enough to read

I need a recommendation. Specifically, a decent biography of John Calvin. By “decent biography,” I mean something that is neither a hagiography nor a celebration of Reformation doctrine, which rules out anything, so far as I can tell, by Reformed scholars. This year is the 500th anniversary of the old boy’s birth. I figure I ought to get to know him better, especially now that he is safely dead, and can neither send me to the gallows nor make me crawl through the streets of Geneva begging his pardon. A review of Alister McGrath’s book makes it look promising. Any suggestions?
