9780099501435: Things I Didn't Know

Robert Hughes, one of the most illuminating minds ever to have taken on the subjects of art and culture, uses his same critical abilities to give us a brutally intimate account of his early life, up until the time he quit Australia for the United States.

Part memoir, part history lesson, part philosophical tract, Hughes uses his own experiences to examine the nature of art, war, sex, religion, writing and life itself.

Piercing, razor-sharp, and above all, fearless, this is by far Hughes's most personal writing to date.

Review:

"Entertaining" (Geoff Dyer Mail on Sunday)

"This is, as you'd expect, a hugely entertaining book" (Martin Gayford Sunday Telegraph)

"Edgy and engrossing memoir" (Waldemar Januszczak Sunday Times)

"Hughes...deftly intertwines personal and cultural history in this fiercely erudite memoir...it offers a fascinating examination of artistic patrimony and the formation of a critic" ( New Yorker)

"Bracingly candid... There isn't a phrase that doesn't reward immediate rereading" ( New Statesman)

Book Description:

What Robert Hughes did for the history of Australia in The Fatal Shore, he now does for his own life.
