Product Description:

Review:

"The most fascinatingly provocative, intimate study of an artist I have ever read" (Patrick Skene Catling Evening Standard)

"It preserves precisely the aspects of Bacon that will be hardest for scholarly researchers to capture... no-one can convey better than Farson the fun of Bacon's company and the louche adventures of the Soho underworld" (Lynn Barber Independent on Sunday)

"Positively Runyonesque...well-written, entertaining, and above all, thought-provoking" (David Mellor Daily Telegraph)

"Startlingly revealing" ( Times Literary Supplement)
